Dangerous ground.

Toward advancing this commentary I’d like to stipulate to two things.

First, when you back out the over-the-top tweets and the name calling and the rest of the things that a lot of people don’t like about Donald Trump, you’re left with the fact that he had a very good presidency. On the economy, energy policy, foreign policy, the border and more, Trump’s presidency was a success.

And second, for all his success, Donald Trump is no saint. Many (but to be clear, nowhere close to all) of the problems that Trump now faces he brought upon himself. Those self-inflicted wounds hurt more than Trump. They serve to make victims of everyone who ever supported him and who continue to support his agenda.

So…with those two stipulations set forth, we’re left to consider the four indictments comprising 91 alleged felonies that Trump now faces. These prosecutions of Donald Trump are glaringly corrupt. According to polling data, most Americans believe that if Trump were a Democrat under the same set of facts, he would never have been indicted. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, appearing on Hannity on the Fox News Channel Tuesday night, summed it up well.

It is Barack Obama who corrupts the Justice Department. It is Hillary Clinton who routinely breaks the law and gets away with it. And now we have Joe Biden who’s learned. He’s learned from Obama that it doesn’t matter what you do, if you’re a liberal Democrat you will not be prosecuted. He learned from Hillary that a person in high public office can get millions and millions of dollars.

And they learned from watching Donald Trump that a true outsider, willing to take on the entire system, could destroy their entire machine.

So, what you’re seeing across the country, is a desperate, last-ditch effort by a corrupt machine, to destroy their most dangerous opponent in a way which breaks the Constitution, destroys the rule of law and establishes a moment of bitterness which I think will last for a generation or more.

This is going to be a horrendous period and we just need to understand, the people who want to control America and dictate to the rest of us will break any law, lie about any topic and manipulate the system any way they can. And that includes a lot of the elite news media.”

It is possible that Donald Trump did something that prosecutors will successfully gin up into a process crime conviction (see the reference to self-inflicted wounds above).

It is possible.

But it is beyond intellectually honest dispute that Hillary Clinton broke the law in a very serious way. And there is ample (and growing) probable cause to believe the Joe Biden did, too.

Until such time as the asymmetric treatment of Trump as compared to Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden is addressed, there is zero chance that prosecutors will have the country behind them in criminally prosecuting a former president.

Which means that we’re on extremely dangerous ground.

Buckle up. Because we’re embarking on what is certain to be a difficult and very bitter period in American history.

    I desperately want to Trump to win the 2024 race. When that happens, you watch Biden try to get the senate to NOT CONFIRM Trump’s electors. January 6th will happen again, but this time Biden won’t be able to attract even 10 people to protest. He knows, as does every other Democrat that once Trump has the launch codes and the military behind him, he will take revenge and it won’t be pretty. Abraham Lincoln took vengeance on the South, Trump won’t even need an army, he can (and SHOULD) do it all by himself.

    There is no question that Trump is being demonized by the enemies of our Constitutional Conservative, America First, Patriotic movement that is trying to rescue OUR Republic from the weaponized, criminal forces of the Globalist, Commicrat, Corrupt, Marxist infested Federal and State governments of both Democrat and Republican stripes in all three branches of our Nation. This Uni-party cabal would still condemn our movement as “domestic terrorists” even if Trump were an Angel. Therefore, I can’t accept that Trump is his own worst enemy due to his “bad behavior”. This “bad behavior” is an exaggerated Media fabrication that acts like the Pravda arm of these Marxists that is on a mission to destroy this Republic, starting with the Family and beyond. This is being done in order to distract our attention with triviality while completely exonerating the TRUE criminals that would be in the penitentiary if our Republic were functioning according to the Constitutional Law of the Land. Trump is drawing fire on OUR (domestic terrorists) behalf BECAUSE he is “over the target” as the most lethal political weapon that they fear.

    We have already started turning into a “banana republic” as these Commiecrats in power wield their illegitimate authority due to the stolen election facilitated by the planned COVID debacle that could have easily been handled by repurposed drugs that had been wildly successful for decades. These drugs were demonized into oblivion by these same subversive members of the unaccountable Deep State that used FEAR to guide their Coup d’état elimination of personal freedoms (for health reasons, of course). The “climate change” destruction of the earth by human activity (as a free society) is the next FEAR tactic to stifle Liberty and assert authoritarian control over what is left of our Constitutional Republic.

    Notice how many spineless Republicans were afraid to tell the truth that anyone with common sense would acknowledge as the 2020 stolen election unfolded in real time. If it weren’t for the lazy and timid Republicans that would NOT see the obvious evidence before their face, we would not be seeing the rapid demise of our Nation, today! Trump’s policies, not his personality, is what scared the “kinder and gentler, Bush-like, moderate” Republicans who liked the praise of the Media and the Democrats that valued their “compromise skills” to the determent of the Nation at large. The bottom line is that Trump and the America First movement will never be allowed to take power from these Marxists because too many illegal schemes are being cooked up to prevent that happening, including violence as orchestrated by hired agents, if you get my drift.

    President Trump is no Saint but when you put him along side of the clintons, pelosi, feinstien, and while we are at it lets go all the way back to lbj. There are more who should be on this list but I’d be here all day listing them. Lbj was known for his crooked ways and stuffing ballot boxes…what was done about it? Nothing. A laugh and a shrug and all was good.
    Feinstien and pelosi were not presidents but deserve to be in this as well. First off, did you ever hear of anyone running against them in all the time they “served” in Congress? Neither have I, but they always “won” their seat in congress. Think about that as you remember how pelosi vetted barry as he ran for President and how she shoved obamacare down the American People’s throats and how she alluded to how it would be like Christmas when passed! The list of her “endeavors” is a long one and not always in favor of America or the citizens. Feinstien had a chinese driver who for twenty years was a chinese spy and she knew nothing about it? Not someone I would trust in a pinch if she was that unaware of what is going on around her.
    Now we come to hillary clinton. There are many variations to this story but the one I was always told was about a fox fixing to cross a river and a poisonous snake hollers to the fox to wait a minute. It asked the fox if he could ride across on it’s back to which the fox replies. No, because when we got to the other side safely you would bite me and I would die. The smooth talking snake says to the fox, oh no, I wouldn’t do that to you after carrying me across like that! After a lot of talk the snake wears the fox down and tells the snake to get aboard his back. When the fox and snake reach the other side, the snake slithers off then bites the fox just as the fox said he would! Now this little tale is brought to my mind every time hillary’s name is mentioned because everyone who becomes “friends” with her has an accident or commits suicide. Vince Foster comes to mind along with two young boys who lived around Mena, Arkansas. I’m not even going to try and list all the weird things that happened in and around the clinton circle. But I would like to know what happened to the plane that boxes upon boxes of things were loaded into at Little Rock. Also who paid for all the phones and computers destroyed under the clinton time? HOW did she get away with destroying property that ultimately comes out of the TAXPAYERS pocket? How has she kept from being indicted for throwing up the 2016 election was stolen from her every chance she gets? She throws her “stolen election” out there every chance she gets, yet President Trump gets indicted for mentioning the 2020 election being stolen? President Trump endured his Presidency being marred by what has been PROVEN to be a hoax paid for by guess who? Yeah, you know who!
    People who do not like President Trump for one reason or the other fails to recognize just what all that President Trump accomplished during his time in office. There is a lot to like about President Trump if you would just shut OFF your TV, the radio or not play youtube videos on your computer or phone. If you would not listen to the snake wanting to cross the river on your back, you could see that President TRUMP isn’t the bad guy here!!!

      Linda: All “Very” successful people have huge egos. Our system of re-electing the same politician over and over has spawned massive egos in these folks. Pride, Stubbornness, Vanity are three of the “Seven Deadly Sins” and most highly successful people have these three. Why? Because “They” are always right. I hate the word entitled; but this too is part of the 3 sins we have allowed to perpetuate our political system. Career politicians and the lack of action on our part has helped all this. Trump is a pain in the neck; but the guy is sincere in his wish to help everyone. He knows if everyone is productive and successful, America across the board will be the same (common sense). As we have said ad nausea on this blog: Democrats equal domination of the population, Marxism, Communism, chaos, and control of the population. But, there are Republicans a.k.a Mitch McConnell, Lindsay Graham, and more to name a few, who are a part of that exclusive “Good Ole Boy and Girl Club” that want the “Entitled” label. I too want Trump President; if not for anything else, because he WILL clean house and do his darnest to “Drain the Swamp” in D.C. We need the Swamp Drained so very badly at this point in time. Plus, this time around, he will appoint an Attorney General who will follow up on all the evidence and charges against those corrupt people like Hillary, Barack, Schiff, Pelosi, Biden, etc. They cannot have that guy in power or they are all toast. Microsoft and Meta are in the same boat, so they too will devote all their resources to destroying Trump. The Jury is still out and hopefully not a loaded jury against Trump.

    Linda, you are correct as you identify the REAL Leftist culprits that try to shift our legitimate contempt from themselves to Trump while they continue to treat the country with malfeasance. You can also identify their “silent” collaborators who refuse to condemn the obvious truth of their malfeasance by remaining “neutral”, too many of which “claim” to be Conservative.

    I believe DJ Trump is being locked up and removed because if something were to happen to Biden; wouldnt Trump be back in office (normally last President steps back into office, Right?) Also to eliminate his chance to run for office again. They know who we want (desperately need) in office and he would win in the end. I believe they fear the consequences of being caught/exposed 😱 so they will do anything and everything (obviously) to prevent DJT or anyone else from making America great again especially if it will cost them or should I say un-line their pockets. I feel it is time to fire them all, reorganize all get on the real priorities and save AMERICA before its too late. Just my 2$
