Since Donald Trump announced his run for the Presidency in June 2016, he has been accused, tried, and found guilty for crimes of which he was not guilty. He has been tried in the illegitimate courts of public opinion and petty, power politics. This is neither fair nor just nor Constitutional, but it has been the way of the Democrats since long before Donald Trump was inaugurated on January 20, 2017.
They have never given him a fair trial on any issue, but have subjected him to constant harassment, based on false evidence, lies, and distortions. It is the Democrats who are guilty of crimes against democracy and the Constitution by ignoring their proper business, and spending huge amounts of time and money to persecute the man in the White House – a man whom they hate – probably for defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016 and certainly for being an outlier and a fierce opponent of the corruption in Washington.
Remember, he ran on a platform of “drain the swamp”. And they hate him for it.
Donald Trump has done more for this country and for the American people than any President in living memory. But the lack of respect, the lack of appreciation on the part of the left is stunning.
They hate him because he broke the code. He was – and is – an outlier. He didn’t obey the rules of the road that have been carefully laid down over the years to serve the interests of the men and women in our federal legislature. He promised to ‘drain the swamp’ that has been their comfort cushion, that has enriched them, for decades. And he went around them in his efforts to serve the American people, which is what he did. They, on the other hand, lied about him and made up stories – despicable lies – to frame him and bring him down. And now they are lying about his words last week at his huge rally – which is crystal clear – and saying that those words incited insurrection. Those are very strong words. And they are lies.
In his book 1984, George Orwell anticipated this when he wrote: “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more they will hate those that speak it.” And they truly hate Donald Trump.
And more than that, they are willing to tell all manner of lies in order to bring him down. They lied and are lying about what he said and what he did. And so, if their lies have been successful, as Orwell also said, “The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.” And that is the goal – to make the lie become the truth so that the future will be created to match the dystopia that they are trying to create.
To quote Orwell one more time, “And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan,’ controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
So what did Donald Trump do that the Democrats want us to forget? The state of our nation was never better than before the Chinavirus hit us. In his first three years in office, Donald Trump improved the lives of ordinary Americans, in ways people had thought were impossible. He improved the lives of the poor by reinvigorating manufacturing and creating millions of new jobs. He lowered taxes and raised the standard of living for nearly every American. He improved our trade relations with other countries, even China. Under his administration, the American economy grew explosively to unprecedented heights, creating jobs and opportunities, and bringing new hope to people who were formerly ignored and humiliated. And once the Chinavirus attacked us, he moved quickly and ensured that new vaccines would be developed and distributed in record time. Donald Trump kept his promises and he made America a better place to live.
But the Democrats want to erase all of that and recreate the past few years to match their made-up storyline. So the treatment that he received at the hands of the Democrats was brutal – and despicable – based on lies and fraud.
Honestly, I don’t know of another human being who would have taken so much abuse and still carry on as if everything were just fine. With all that was going on, he continued his work, he held his rallies before tens of thousands of people, and he always appeared relaxed and ready to take on the world.
Even the final blow – the fraudulent 2020 elections – in which his votes were destroyed, manipulated, and flipped to Biden – even that did not alter his public demeanor. He reached out to his supporters with a relaxed and almost cheerful attitude. In front of his fans, he was in his element. They adored him – they still adore him – and he always sends his appreciation right back at them.
He wanted that second term to finish his work, and, frankly, to protect the American people from the Democrats’ socialist agenda. And we needed him to have that second term. But no one anticipated the scope of the fraud that the Democrats were willing to perpetrate in order to deprive us all of his second-term. They used every trick in the book to bring him down and to destroy the integrity of the election. And they succeeded.
And there is no recourse. The Democrats refused to admit to any fraud in the elections, and they further refused to investigate any charges of fraud. That is expected. But when the courts – even the Supreme Court – refused to hear the evidence – thousands of sworn affidavits from thousands of eyewitnesses and accredited experts – and they threw out case after case – on technicalities – that was a shock. The evidence didn’t matter, and there was, in the end, no recourse.
So here we are. Now they have succeeded in impeaching him for a second time – once again on made-up charges. The Democrats are triumphant – and without any decency or remorse.
So where do we go from here? When there is no option for justice, what do we tell Donald Trump’s loyal supporters who make up nearly half the country? How do we defuse their anger and, at the same time, save America? How do we get through the fact that our court system has been thoroughly corrupted and that justice is no longer something we can count on? How do we get through that when we have always believed that our system of justice was fundamentally fair when we just found out that it is fundamentally flawed. It makes us angry – and frustrated – and it will take a lot of very hard work to remedy this very great wrong.
President Trump wants us to avoid violence. That may not be completely possible, because, for some, the rage will be overwhelming. But for those of us who still believe that civilized people don’t settle their issues with violence, is there an alternative?
