Good morning, kids. Tuesday and despite all the media spin that Trump lied about the DOJ seizing his passports, only to have the DOJ come and admit that indeed they were taken, the most important points to remember about this entire horrific, nightmare scenario is that in a sane and just world, there was absolutely ZERO legal justification for this Gestapo-like raid on Mar-a-Lago, period, full stop. The records that Trump has in his possession were first and foremost legal insofar as the ones in question had been declassified by him during his tenure in office. And the idea of him having nuclear codes is ridiculous on the face of it.
In any case, former presidents do retain documents mostly for the purposes of memoirs, presidential libraries and such as a matter of time-honored tradition and routine. Prior to the raid, the FBI and DOJ were aware of the nature of the documents and Trump cooperated with them, in fact if I remember correctly (and please do correct my timeline and details if I’m fuzzy), they were present at Mar-a-Lago several times to deal with the re-classifying of some materials by the current illegal junta. Again, do chime in to correct me on these details, which are getting into the weeds. Although, that said, the video of the braindead liberal who spouted crap about Trump finally be nailed for a host of provable crimes, when queried by the interviewer to name one of them, was seen doing the “Norman! Coordinate!” boogaloo and replied “I’m done talking.” That right there tells you everything you need to know as to why, as Rush Limbaugh of blessed memory would often say “the left doesn’t want to level the playing field, they want to clear it.” When confronted with the truth and with facts their arguments fall to pieces faster than a drunken muumuu-wearing harridan at a 9/11 memorial service. Same goes for that freak Jamie Raskin when confronted by a random act of journalism on this “Inflation Reduction Act” farce and asked point blank how specifically it will reduce inflation responds “Next question.”
In any case, the salient point in all of this is whatever pretext was used to conduct this revolting incident was complete and utter bullshit. To my dying day I will maintain that Donald Trump is probably among the most honest individuals to ever hold public office in the last 50 to 100 years, bar none. Say what you will about his personality or vibe or whatever other things really have no relevancy to his tenure as president and to his oath of office, from day one, he told the absolute truth about what he was going to do if and when he took office. The only “crime” he committed was daring to try to overturn the tables of the money changers and reverse the course of history that as we now are seeing and experiencing are taking us over a cliff, and much of the western world with us courtesy of this Global Reset. Concomitant with that was the other “offense” if you will of exposing and exploding so many myths about the nature of our government and how rotten and corrupt the whole system is to tens of millions of people, myself included, who deluded themselves into thinking the republic, flawed from time to time though it may be, still functioned mostly as intended.
It is obvious that it does not and has not for many years if not decades. And for sure, it is dead. If it didn’t die on Election Night 2020 or even on January 6th, 2021, there can be no doubt that August 8th, 2022 put the nail in the coffin. Like everything else Trump has had to go through with the impeachments, the NY AG investigations and all the rest, they are gunning for him, figuratively and I have no doubt likely quite literally now. It doesn’t matter that there is no real evidence (manufactured by Hillary Clinton and Marc Elias or not), or if, as one link describes that they violated his 6th Amendment rights by seizing his passports, thereby supposedly putting whatever case they have in jeopardy. “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” as Lavrenty Beria would say.
They want vengeance against Trump for winning 2016 and doing things that exposed the Democrat Deep State Global Reset Crowd as the frauds, criminals and incompetents that they are for all the world to see. They cannot allow him back in power again. So he will be gotten rid of. The estimable Julie Kelly warns us to prepare for the inevitable.
It now appears inevitable that the Justice Department will bring criminal charges against the former president. FBI Director Christopher Wray’s stunt at Mar-a-Lago on August 8 is part of creating the optical illusion that Donald Trump is guilty of any number of crimes related to January 6 or the mishandling of secret government documents—or both. On Monday, the Justice Department subpoenaed another Trump White House lawyer as the legal momentum accelerates.
Attorney General Merrick Garland is doing his part to build the public case while Lisa Monaco, his deputy, runs the day-to-day lawfare operation against Trump. Monaco, a longtime Obama confidant who worked in his White House until the last day, is a rabid Trump hater. She intends to finish what the Obama Justice Department started in 2016 by indicting Donald Trump. . .
. . . This is the legal and judicial circle of hell now fired up to come for President Trump—a vengeful Justice Department run by Obama loyalists working with a weaponized FBI to bring criminal charges against hundreds of Trump supporters who then face the wrath of enraged judges of both political parties. There is no way out.
And at this point, there’s no way out for Merrick Garland, either. Democrats have raised expectations that Trump soon will be in handcuffs; failure to do so will result in a harsh backlash by their own voters this fall. After six years of promises, Democrats better deliver the goods on Trump or face intra-party revolt.
Kelly of course reminds us of the kangaroo courts that have already thrown the book at J6 entrapment victims while scores still rot away in the Garland Archipelago awaiting the same fate. You think a DC jury pool with scum like Beryl Howell and Emmett Sullivan on the bench are going to give a flying fuck about minor annoyances like due process and actual evidence? We joke about the fantasy of frog-marching a handcuffed Hillary Clinton to an arraignment but that is more than likely what will happen to Trump soon enough.
And remember, this is not just about Trump. It’s about you and me, especially now that the IRS has been supersized into what is effectively another branch of the same Stasi/Gestapo apparatus that is our FBI and DOJ, DHS, ATF, CIA, EPA and every other bureaucracy that is also now armed to the teeth and authorized to use deadly force if necessary. As Trump himself warned “they’re after you.” And now they are doing whatever they can to get him out of the way.
This is bigger than merely Trump as a candidate. Trump is quickly taking on the mantle of leader of a movement that could very well become among the greatest political movements in history. Nailing him is a warning shot to anyone else who dares pick up the mantle of restoring America and our freedom. Not just politicians running for office but anyone who dares speak out in defiance of the shackles being prepared for us as we speak. If Trump is arrested and tried, what will be the reaction and what will be the effect down the road?
