The last few days have seen some developments that should frighten any patriotic American. Bluntly, this is banana republic type stuff – and CNAV apologizes at once to the Republic of Ecuador, the largest exporter of bananas in the world. For the first time in history, an elected public prosecutor threatens to arrest a former President of the United States. (And a State-level public prosecutor, at that – not even a United States Attorney or his Assistant.) One thing, if the charges had any validity, but they do not. Thus this prosecutor threatens to show monumental disrespect to half the country – and might seriously damage his Party’s standing with the other half.
The Trump arrest threat – what we know
President Trump sounded the alarm beginning at 6:55 a.m. EDT Saturday with this pair of “Truths” from “Truth Social.”
“Truths” do not embed on any Content Management System, as Twitter “tweets” do. So herewith their text:
Our nation is now third world and dying. The American Dream is dead! The radical left anarchists have stolen our presidential election, and with it, the heart of our our country. American patriots are being arrested and held in captivity like animals, while criminals and leftist thugs are allowed to roam the streets, killing and burning with no retribution. Millions are flooding through our open boarders, many from prisons and mental institutions. Crime and inflation are destroying our very way of life.
The “patriots” here are languishing in prison and, by many accounts, suffering maltreatment, over the January 6 Event. But then Trump continued with this:
Now illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which has allowed new records to be set in violent crime and whose leader is funded by George Soros, indicate that, with no crime being able to be proven, and based on an old and fully debunked (by numerous other prosecutors!) fairytale, the far and away leading republican candidate and former President of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week. Protest, take our nation back!
What is the fairytale?
The “fairytale” is Trump’s allegedly paying the alleged amount of $300,000 to his alleged paramour, “Stormy” Daniels, to “keep quiet.” The problem is, Trump might have paid a lesser amount long ago – but she didn’t keep quite. In fact, she had the bad sense to sue him – and usually no one sues Donald Trump and wins. Worse yet, her attorney, Michael Avenatti, recently landed in prison for 14 years for embezzling money from four other clients.
Exactly one week ago today, no one was expecting the Manhattan DA to get an indictment on this matter. In a Sunday (March 12) interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman mentioned the key weakness. “This is a misdemeanor that they’re trying to push up to a felony,” she said. She further suggested that the case could end with the judge refusing to allow a felony count. Furthermore, even a Manhattan jury could deadlock on such a case.
Dick Morris predicted that:
If New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicts former president Donald Trump, nobody will care. It won’t cost Trump a point and it might even redound to his benefit by showing the world the insane depths to which anti-Trump fanatics will descend to stop him from becoming president again.
But mightn’t anyone care?
Morris did write:
There are indeed some never-Trumpers who will seize on such an indictment to write, yet again, his political obituary.
One of these is former Rep. Adam Kinzinger (RINO-Ill.), formerly of the infamous January 6 Committee. He confidently predicted that “on-the-fence” voters would “move on” because,
Even if the charges were unfair there was too much drama involved.
But Morris insisted that people would forgive any public figure in his position, even if he did what Bragg alleges. (And whether the doing broke the law, or not.) That goes double given Bragg’s track record, like those of the public prosecutors in all too many American cities today, of going soft on crime. Vincent T. Bugliosi prosecuted Charles Manson and his “family” for the murders of Sharon Tate and several others. He later wrote a book (Outrage) excoriating his eventual successor for “blowing” the case against O. J. Simpson. So he must surely be spinning in his grave now that his current successor, and counterparts like Bragg, will not even bother to prosecute real violent offenders. That’s what Trump was talking about in his second “Truth,” and no one has denied that.
But Bragg will actually seek to arrest Donald Trump. In fact he campaigned on bringing an indictment against the former President. That could be an argument against the popular election of public prosecutors.
Reaction to Trump sounding the alarm
The Manhattan DA did not comment directly on the case; most public prosecutors never do. But he took Trump’s call for protest as a threat, and sent this message in response:
We do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York. Alvin Bragg, in an email to staff.
A demonstration apparently broke out on Fifth Avenue outside the Trump Tower:
Lee Zeldin, who came close to becoming New York State’s Governor, said Bragg would not have lasted beyond the first day of a Zeldin administration.
Oddly enough, Mike Pence protested the Trump arrest possibility, too:
User Paul Ingrassia encouraged people to call the DA’s office to urge them to drop any planned action:
Laura Loomer, almost at once, wrote her own article expressing her outraged, and shared the link:
When Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said nothing about the prospect of Trump, a Florida resident, facing extradition to New York, Laura Loomer called him out:
She tried to organize a rally at Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate. Then she changed her mind and deleted that tweet – but left this one:
Note that now she is calling for spontaneous shows of support nationwide and not anything targeting the Manhattan DA’s office. (At least, aside from the kind of calls people can always make to their legislators or other elected officials.)
She also observed this:
Mr. Ingrassia then recommended more phone calls:
Other expressions of outrage
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Speaker of the House, did not hold his peace as Gov. DeSantis did. He actually promised his own investigation – into the Manhattan DA.
Laura Loomer took positive notice. But she also noticed that Nikki Haley was also keeping silent:
Vivek Ramaswamy, a clear “dark horse” candidate for the nomination, left a stronger expression of outrage:
Nor, apparently, was he through with that. He called out DeSantis and Haley both on what he regarded as an unbecoming silence.
After Trump apparently announced (on St. Patrick’s Day) that he would hold his first campaign rally in Waco, Texas,
that was when Laura Loomer canceled her own event.
Someone accused Trump of leaving January 6 protesters in the lurch. Laura Loomer reacted swiftly:
When DeSantis still did not break his silence, Paul Ingrassia wrote his obituary:
George Behizy left this video showing just how popular Trump is.
A fellow Florida resident warned DeSantis: break your silence on Trump or you’ve already lost.
This user summed up the situation perfectly:
Finally, Jack Posobiec urged people to buy copies of Trump’s single, Justice for All, about the January 6 protesters.
The closest parallel to the situation in which Trump finds himself, aside from republics with export economies and unstable government, might be the war between U.S. Marshal Wyatt Earp and his brothers Morgan and Virgil, and cattle rustler Ike Clanton and his gang, in Tombstone, Arizona in 1881. The Earps and friend John Henry “Doc” Holliday killed Ike Clanton’s brother Bill, and brothers Frank and Tom McLaury. After that, Ike actually filed murder charges against the Earps. Justice of the Peace Wells Spicer held a thirty-day hearing. That hearing included perjured testimony from Ike Clanton, crooked Sheriff Johnny Behan, and other witnesses. But still other witnesses, including a totally disinterested one, gave them the lie. In the end, Justice Spicer acquitted the Earps and Holliday, saying they all acted within the law.
Ike’s gang did not stop, however. They maimed Virgil Earp in an ambush and killed Morgan Earp with a classic backshot. After that, Wyatt Earp went after Clanton’s gang personally – with Johnny Behan mounting a pursuit worthy of Victor Hugo’s Javert.
Alvin Bragg is shaping up to play a modern Johnny Behan to Trump’s Wyatt Earp – this although Trump is not accused of taking a life. We see here a bitter political feud leading to abuses of office – all on one side. But more than bitterness is at stake here – because the abusive side lets real criminals go free. This should tell all Americans whose side either Party is on.
Nor do the parallels stop here. In Tombstone, Ike Clanton had his sympathizers, who staged an elaborate funeral for Bill Clanton and the McLaurys. They treated those men like heroes, despite what they really were. Then as now, some people apparently cared little for law and order, or even for the rules of honorable combat.
Today, Trump represents ordered liberty, and the protection of life, liberty and property. Alvin Bragg has let thieves and murderers take over his city. A thief is an irregular wealth-redistribution agent – and a murderer is an irregular population thinner.
I find it very hard to believe that a racist, Soros backed D.A., who lets murderers, rapists, and drug dealers walk free, and who has presided over the biggest violent crime wave in the history of NYC, is using the power of his office to persecute, indict, and prosecute a former President of the United States of America — for no crime! The witch hunt never ends, but we will make America great again!!!
For that matter, the case against Trump will likely include perjured testimony, another Tombstone parallel.
Just reported that the most important witness to go before the New York City grand jury, a highly respected lawyer who once represented convicted felon, jailbird, and serial fake storyteller and liar, Michael Cohen, will be doing so tomorrow afternoon. The information he will present will supposedly be conclusive and irrefutable! Witch hunt!!!
For every American, now is the time to decide.
