The left seems to be doing everything it can to take down Trump on flimsy charges that seem to be guaranteed to be thrown aside one charge at a time. They try taking him off the ballot in Colorado, while 16 other blue states consider doing the same thing. They accuse him of fraud for overvaluing his Maro largo estate in applying for loans that he’s already paid off. They’re trying to use a Civil War statute not used in over a century to convict him of being an “insurrectionist.” And, of course, Trump must be guilty of election interference for questioning the 2020 election results that half of American voters question.

Such actions give the appearance that they’re fearful of facing Trump and will do everything they can to keep him out of the race. But to everyone following the news, the charges seem blatantly political and unlikely to be successful. Because he’s being wronged, Trump is soaring in the polls, and he is gleefully proclaiming himself as the presumptive Republican candidate before a single primary or caucus vote. To Trump, there is no need to debate the second team!

Of course, many Democrat pundits warn the faithful about how these charges just play into President Trump’s hand. David Axelrod comments are indicative of many others: “All the legal challenges that have been thrown at Trump have so far helped strengthen him in the Republican primary, as he depicts himself as a victim. CO will be the same. What seems like Kryptonite winds up being battery packs in the GOP primary.”

But what if the Democrats want President Trump to be the candidate? After all, they beat Trump in the 2020 election and frustrated the GOP expectations of victory in the 2022 midterms by labeling all candidates as those awful MAGA, Trump-loving Republicans. There is clear evidence that when Trump is running, it helps fuel Democrat fundraising. We also know that nothing gets Democrats to the polls better than keeping that “hated” Trump” out of office. They’ve beaten him before, and the “Hate Trump” voters can’t wait to do it again.

In a recent column, Ann Coulter pointed out the danger of coronating Trump early: “Defying all expectations, by me at least, Republicans have reacted to these garbage prosecutions by saying, Watch this, liberals! We’re going to punish you by handing Democrats the presidency, the House and the Senate. You disqualified Trump from the ballot, Colorado? We’re going to put Democrats in a position to pack the court! I can’t enstupid myself enough to understand why being the victim of legal persecution is supposed to make someone a great candidate for president. Please draw a diagram from ‘These Trump indictments are outrageous!’ to ‘Let’s make him our nominee!’”

Democrats certainly know that, even if he is convicted, these charges are weak, are ultimately indefensible, and won’t stop him from running. They know that the conservative U.S. Supreme Court will knock any convictions down before the election. Trump will be saved to run! But to the left, Trump running may very well be their best chance of pulling a victory out of a potential defeat. They don’t want to face the young and successful Governor Ron DeSantis. He could be in office for two terms!

Think back to the classic folklore stories of Brer Rabbit from Uncle Remus by Joel Chandler Harris. Brer Fox laid a trap for Brer Rabbit by inducing him to get stuck in a Tar Baby and thus had finally captured his long-time tormentor. The fox had him right where he wanted him and began to debate with the trapped rabbit about how he was going to bring about his demise. The wily rabbit, however, tricked the fox by pleading with Brer Fox to punish or torture him in any way except one.

“Drown me just as deep as you please, Brer Fox,” said Brer Rabbit, “but for Lord’s sake don’t fling me in in that briar patch.” “There’s no water nearby,” said Brer Fox, “so I think I’d rather skin you.” “Skin me, Brer Fox, snatch out my eyeballs, tear out my ears by the roots, and cut off my legs,” said Brer Rabbit. “Just please don’t throw me in that briar patch.”

Of course, that was exactly what the rabbit wanted and eventually what he was able to get. Since the briar thickets were his normal stomping grounds, he had successfully tricked his enemy and once more scampered out of harm’s way. What is the truth revealed? What you claim to fear is sometimes what you most want to win the day.

Trapped into defending an almost indefensible Biden track record, Democrats may be playing the only card that even gives them a chance of winning. They beg Republicans who think they can’t lose, “Please, I know you have me where you want me, but please, please, don’t make Trump your nominee. Give me Haley or DeSantis, but please spare me having to run against that terrible President Trump. Brer Rabbit may be laughing and applauding on the sidelines of this election soap opera.

It’s Trump’s Time to Shine

Published

on

Former President Trump could easily be over-confident going into the June debate. President Joe Biden isn’t even comfortable answering questions from friendly media who want him to look good. He struggles even when he has note cards. Can you imagine how he might perform in the debate when he doesn’t know the questions or Donald Trump’s response. Even many in his own party are worried about him not performing well.

It almost makes you wonder if this could be the Democrats’ plan. A poor performance in the debates could increase the calls for Biden to step down and not run for four more years. With the next scheduled debate being in September and their Chicago convention in August, Democrats would have time to let Biden withdraw with honor and still have time to select another candidate who would not be burdened with having to defend the Biden record.

Former President Trump has been making fun of Biden at every turn—his advanced age, his mental failings, his stupid comments, and his failed policies. It will be tempting but a mistake for Trump to make the debate focus Biden’s failings. Belittling Biden reinforces the view that Trump is mean spirited. In 2020, Biden didn’t beat Trump; Trump beat himself. It was the “hate Trump” voters that came out to defeat Trump, electing Biden was just the result of their intense dislike of the GOP candidate. To focus on demeaning Biden will only fuel the haters and give undecided independents a reason to stay home.

President Trump has the platform priorities that Americans are eager to support. Instead of wasting comments on Biden’s inadequacies, Trump should focus on what he will immediately do once back in office. If he keeps coming back to the following nine winning messages, Trump will win in a landslide:

1. Americans overwhelmingly want an end to Biden’s open border. The day I take office, I will use executive orders to end open borders and reinstate my policies that helped cut illegal immigration to the lowest rate in decades. There will be no amnesty for illegals. Illegals committing crimes will be deported immediately. Illegals will not receive government entitlements reserved for citizens and those here legally.

2. Too many Americans are living paycheck to paycheck paying inflated costs for fuel and food. I will immediately institute an “all of the above” energy policy that will once again make America 100% energy independent and lower the cost of fuel. That alone will begin to bring down the inflated price for food and other basic needs.

3. America is tired of watching criminals do crimes and then being released the next day. Do the crime, do the time. I will do everything I can to use federal law to hold criminals responsible when states won’t. I will strongly support law enforcement and work to keep Americans safe in their cities!

4. Americans are tired of elitists deciding what is best for their children. I will put parents back in control of the choices that have always been theirs. I will work in support of school choice and require parental approval for any surgery no matter what a child’s “declared” gender.

5. Americans in both parties have strong views on abortion and women’s rights. I will reject any efforts to pass federal legislation on this divisive issue. I will support allowing states to vote on this important issue.

6. Americans remain reluctant in using our military in foreign wars. When I was President, I made it clear that we wanted no war, but would respond strongly to any military aggression by our foes. I am committed to keeping America strong and our adversaries know and fear that.

7. Americans do not trust our election process. I will do what I can to return America to our pre-COVID procedures that had worked for over a century. We will return to limiting voting to one day. Voters will be required to request and sign any absentee ballot, verify citizenship at the polls, and use paper ballots that can be recounted as needed. There is no need for additional days, ballot harvesting, or voting machines that do not rely on paper ballots.

8. Americans are tired of forced environmental extremism and unjustified warnings about catastrophic climate change. If citizens want an EV, a hybrid, or a gas-fueled car, that will be their choice. America can and will take care of the environment by leading the world in clean energy technology that can take advantage of our rich oil, gas, coal, and alternative energy resources.

9. Finally, Americans are tired of exploding government spending and out-of-control national debt. It is time to cut the size of government. We will work to take on the “deep state” to get rid of redundancy and costly inefficiencies. It’s time to end automatic budget increases and institute zero-based budgeting that requires every budget area to be justified every year.

If former President Trump uses every debate question to focus on what he will to do if elected, Joe Biden is likely to self-destruct on his own. Biden’s inadequacies are painfully evident. By focusing on the issues that matter to Americans, it won’t matter what candidate the Democrats settle on. With a winning platform, Trump will win in a landside and bring Congress and the Senate along for the ride. By avoiding personal attacks, he won’t add fuel for the haters. In short, it’s time for Trump to give voters back the America they fear they are losing. May it be so!

A Way Forward after Trump Found Guilty

This is not the America we have known and loved. This is legal warfare striking at the heart of our republic. For the first time, an American President has been found guilty on 34 counts in a New York courtroom. As it now stands, he will be sentenced on July 11th. It may be unlikely Trump will be sentenced to prison, but even if the verdict ends up being repealed, what will be the result of this unanimous conviction on the November election and our growing political divide?

Will Americans rally behind a President wronged by a partisan assault on our legal system? Those who support him will clearly rally to his side. Within hours Trump doubled the record for daily contributions with a commitment of over $34 million, over twenty percent of which was from first time contributors. Right now, his support is growing.

That small New York jury, influenced by a biased judge, will not decide the future of America, voters will in November. Americans will have the opportunity to vote the verdict that counts most by reelecting Donald Trump President. But as positive as polls may appear right now for the past President, those voters who hate Trump are happy with the result and will show up at the polls to defeat that “felon” Trump.

The “Hate Trump” vote gave Biden the Presidency in 2020. Biden didn’t win on his personality or platform; it was the “hate Trumpers” who came out in record numbers to defeat Donald Trump. They have not gone away, and they now have more ammunition to fuel their hatred of the man.

Conservatives know that this next election is critical to the future of our republic. Candidate Biden presented himself as a harmless centrist ready to unite the country. But he governed as a progressive extremist using executive orders to end our energy independence, open our border to millions of illegal aliens, and spend our way into crippling inflation leaving many living paycheck to paycheck. Biden will claim that the rate of inflation has come down, but the result of months of inflation remain, putting more and more American on the brink of insolvency.

If people vote on whether they are better off after 4 years of Joe Biden, Trump’s conviction will mean little. Far too many Americans are hurting. No matter your age, politics, or race, if you can’t put food on the table for your family, you want a change. You remember what your life was like under Donald Trump. They will compare that to life under Joe Biden. The choice should be easy for another Trump victory.

But will that be the case in November. Now, there are strong reactions engendered by this kangaroo court and the travesty of these convictions. But it is a long way to November, and we are yet to see what the long-term impact of this court decision and possible additional convictions that may yet come. Some legal analysts have suggested that the New York case was the least likely charge to result in a conviction. Will Americans get weary of a wounded warrior, a President that is fighting against one partisan persecution after another?

Republicans are united in the belief that they must win this next election. Will there come a time that the baggage Trump carries into the election make his election unlikely? As of now, he is facing a failing opponent who has a hard time putting sentences together. But more and more Democrats are calling for Biden not to run and to find a new candidate to put forward.

What would happen if Biden steps down as President Johnson did? Who would Democrats put in his place? Would it be Michelle Obama? Some question putting a person up for election that has never been elected to any office. On the positive side, Michelle has no record to defend, she would bring back the aura of President Barack Obama’s Presidency, and she could easily disavow support for Biden’s controversial decisions. In short, she could be the Democrats dream candidate to rally behind.

On the morning after the verdicts and record donations to his campaign, Donald Trump said to America, “I will do what I have to do to save our country.” What if the early poll numbers for Trump begin to fade the closer we get to November? Would Donald Trump put America first if it looks more and more like he might lose to the candidate Democrats choose? Could he step down and campaign in support of a candidate with no negative baggage and powerful Contract with America? The Republicans have a strong bench of ready candidates and winning issues to support.

Right now, it is not clear his stepping down is necessary. But if it is, I hope that Donald Trump would put his love for country first. He has been wronged, but winning in November is more important than whether Donald Trump is our next President. Whoever Republicans elect would bring the right people to Washington and the policy priorities that matter to Americans would once again drive the focus of this great country.

Rest assured that if Trump is the Republican candidate in November, we must work to rally support for him. Just know that with the election irregularities that are sure to surface, our candidate must win big. If the GOP wins big, Democrats can’t cheat their way to victory. May Trump live up to his promise to do whatever he has to do to save this country, whether that means running himself or supporting someone else better positioned to win. But win we must! May it be so.
