The indictment of former president and current Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by left-leaning New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg, based on a completely fabricated, baseless and unprecedented case that the other Trump-hating government refused to produce, is absolutely disgusting. .
It’s a blatant attack on the rule of law that “normalizes” other rogue cases that may come from Georgia to Washington in a perpetual coup against Trump and anyone else who dares engage in every Trumpian (thought) criminality. a related case – opposition to our ruling elite.
It is, of course, election interference of the highest order.
It may be intended to create a backlash to justify yet further crackdowns on political dissidents (on January 6), or at the very least to divide and fragment the country to serve the political ends of our ruling class.
To the extent that the former president is not only being prosecuted legally, but forced to remain silent about it, subject to a gag order issued by the New York County DA that deprives him of his First Amendment rights, as claimed, it will only be insulting. the damage is already done.
But as appalling as this parade of horrors is, perhaps the most tragic aspect of this charade, with which we can hardly come to terms with it for years, is that it destroyed our republican system.
The case against Donald Trump may collapse. He may win the 2024 presidential election. Any official with the support of George Soros can be fired.
However, D.A. Bragg initiated this case can never be undone. A precedent has been set. America, like any tin dictatorship, now legally prosecutes leaders when out of power. Its rulers, like Beria, seek to imprison the opposition, criminalize dissent, finding a crime that fits the man. Now, as another New York State Attorney’s Office It just goes to show that our ruling class doesn’t just prosecute presidents, it wins cases condemning political memes.
For generations, millions of people have fled their ancestral homelands penniless and without knowing a word of English to come to America seeking refuge from the very regime that has become ours.
There is nowhere else to run.
In an attempt to destroy one man, our ruling elites have not only abolished the rule of law for all of us, they have fundamentally transformed America into a third world nation, thus fundamentally transforming American-led Western Civilization.
This is a world historical disaster from which there is no turning back.
And there is no way.
Perhaps in the best case scenario, a “laughter” can temporarily curb such behavior. However, even if effective, and America turns away from a devastating escalation, the possibility will forever remain in the background.
At the same time, despite the growing awareness among some conservatives that their political opponents will do anything and everything to destroy them, and that therefore conservatives must use all the levers of force available within the law against opposition that is not constrained by such constraints, there is little evidence to offer. Most Republicans in power are so inclined.
Neither President Joe Biden nor anyone else in his administration is currently under impeachment.
This after Trump was unjustly impeached twice.
No one is paying for the lives destroyed and laws broken by China’s response to the coronavirus, let alone the cover-ups of its origins.
No one is paying for the massive public-private censorship regime that has conspired against our First Amendment rights.
No one pays to harass concerned parents like domestic terrorists.
No one pays for the railroad of the defendants of January 6.
No one is paying for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s kidnapping hoax.
Nobody paid for Russiagate.
Going back, no one paid for the Hillary Clinton email scandal, least of all including Clinton herself.
Nobody paid for Benghazi.
No one paid for the IRS to target Tea Party groups.
No one ever pays for the abuse of the ruling class because everything is fair game when it comes to advancing its power.
In fact, we all paid for it—literally—with our own tax dollars.
And anyone who dares to challenge the ruling class may pay more for their thought crimes.
After the Mar-a-Lago raid, I wrote that:
“The specific legal grounds of the championship, like the grounds of the upcoming indictment, are really meaningless.
“Trump’s crime has been and always has been to threaten the power and privilege of the Regime, thereby representing tens of millions of Americans whom the Regime sees as an obstacle to its total control and for whom it has absolute contempt.
“That’s all the ‘foreseeing’ that the regime had to pursue him from the day he appeared in Trump Tower to declare himself an unprecedented political force and, since then, to deal with all kinds of sympathizers.” Wrong thinkers the same
“The pretense of the rule of law is gone, and to delude oneself into thinking otherwise after the two-tiered, Soviet-style standard of justice we’ve seen applied time and time again over the last six years would be dangerously foolish.”
As terrible as the feeling was after the Mar-a-Lago raid, no doubt the feelings of horror and demoralization for millions of Americans are now infinitely more palpable.
Perhaps this is the goal. to subjugate Americans by demeaning our country, turning it into something unrecognizable, a nation of people with rules, not laws, but laws, not laws.
This is tyranny.
There is no going back to the America that was. Our children and grandchildren will not live in the country we were in before. They will never fully appreciate what was lost, and never know what it was like to live in the America we loved.
There should be widespread mourning in America today. That there isn’t doesn’t tell you all you need to know about the perilous state of this great nation.
