It appears that Barack Obama’s threatened “fundamental transformation” of America is about to be complete next week, as we will reportedly turn full-on banana republic with the unprecedented arrest of a former President and leading presidential candidate on clearly partisan charges.
This relates to an allegation from six years ago that Trump made improper hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her from claiming they had a one-night affair, which Trump denies. It’s a case that federal authorities passed on prosecuting, and that New York authorities also dropped, but Soros-backed D.A. Alvin Bragg (who can’t seem to find an actual felony that he will prosecute) reportedly plans to bump this charge up from a misdemeanor to a felony so we can have the political theater of handcuffing and arresting Trump. You know, just like we had the political theater of an armed raid on Mar-A-Lago to seize "classified documents" that turned out to be a big fizzle.
I am old enough to remember when Nixon haters demanded that Nixon be indicted for something, but wiser heads realized how divisive that would be and said, “This is America, we don’t jail our former Presidents.” But today’s Democrat office holders hate America and all its traditions, and this is apparently the next one they plan to destroy.
They don’t seem to care that their case is based on the word of a former porn star and accused extortionist whose previous lawyer has been sentenced to over 20 years in prison for fraud (four of them for defrauding her) and former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who has been convicted on numerous counts of fraud and perjury, but honest, mister, he’s telling the truth now.
p released a video calling this another in the endless political witch hunts and vowing never to surrender, and he's already said that he will continue running for President despite any indictments thrown at him.
He also put out a social media post that might or might not be directly related to this case, reading, “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” I would urge him to clarify that he is NOT calling for protesters to interfere with the judicial process, as much as it might stink. We are the side that stands for law and order and Constitutional due process. Trump has highly-paid attorneys, and we should let them handle this.
The fact that it’s being reported that local, state and federal law enforcement are gearing up for potential violence tells us that is the last thing that should happen. According to NBC, the agencies include “the NYPD, New York State Court Officers, the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.” I’m sure the Democrats are fervently hoping there will be another January 6th that they can use to smear Trump supporters, and they’re probably laying plans to help incite one if there isn’t, so don’t help them and don’t give them one!
The Democrats have been calling for Trump to be jailed for something/anything for years (New York’s attorney general ran on a campaign promise to abuse her office by embracing that Stalinesque "show me the man and I'll show you the crime" tactic, a point I hope his attorneys will bring up in their motion to dismiss), so they’re giddy over this. But let’s hope that like so many of their “the walls are closing in” fantasies, this one will blow up in their faces as well.
Elon Musk already predicted that it will, tweeting, “If this happens (Trump’s arrest), Trump will be reelected in a landslide victory.” I assume he believes it will not only fire up Trump’s base, but also every American who is fed up with weaponized political prosecutions and a two-tiered justice system. The Democrats might want to think about that.
They also might want to think about how bad a precedent it will set for them if we start criminally prosecuting our Presidents. Because we have one right now whose financial scandals are starting to make the allegations against Trump sound like peanuts.
