Our president seems to think he has carte blanche to do anything he wants. Joe Biden—the man who would be king—sells his office to foreign powers, uses the Justice Department to attack his political opponents, ignores Supreme Court rulings, attempts to restructure American society, and wages war on whites. As Shakespeare wrote in Richard III, “Can I do this and cannot get a crown?”

The evidence is accumulating that Biden was involved in a full-blown influence-peddling scam involving several foreign countries and millions of dollars. “This president has used something we have not seen since Richard Nixon—the weaponization of government to benefit his family and deny Congress the ability to have the oversight,” said House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.

“He obviously did know about these deals,” charged Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University. “He had involvement with some of these meetings. You have millions of dollars moving through a labyrinth of accounts. The question then becomes not whether the president has lied, but why he has lied for so many years about this influence-peddling operation run through his son.”

When he is not selling his office, Biden is using the Department of Justice to attack his political adversaries. Following in the footsteps of Barack Obama, Uncle Joe is turning the full force of the DOJ and FBI against US citizens. He is sending a message that anything goes in the pursuit of power, from weaponizing the justice system against his political opponents to rigging elections.

The indictments against Trump, said attorney Alina Habba, are “election interference at its finest.” The Biden gang knows that if Americans vote on Biden’s record, he will lose. “Instead,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, “they want to use the Department of Justice to steal the election by dominating the headlines.” This is the first time a sitting president is overtly interfering in a presidential election by silencing his main rival for the Oval Office. Only a king can get away with that.

The DOJ offensive against Trump, said Sen. Cruz, is “a political indictment” and “the latest manifestation of the politicization of the Department of Justice where the Democrats, every time there are bad developments, about Joe Biden, about Hunter Biden, they immediately turn around and try to overtake the news cycle with yet another attack on Donald Trump. They want all of the headlines to be about anything other than the disastrous Joe Biden record.”

Constitutional lawyer and former Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz agreed. Dershowitz is concerned about living in a banana republic, where “you go after your political opponents by indicting them and denying your right to vote for him or against them.” If Biden pulls this off, he will be king and the rest of us will be serfs on the Democrat plantation.

In blatant disregard for constitutionally mandated separation of powers, Biden seems inclined to ignore Supreme Court rulings, including the one banning affirmative action. Leftist law professors are urging him on. Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political scientist Aaron Belkin called upon the president to defy Supreme Court rulings that he considers mistaken. “What is most striking about these professors,” said Professor Turley, “is how they continue to claim they are defenders of democracy, yet seek to use unilateral executive authority to defy the courts and the majority of the public. They remain the privileged elite of academia, declaring their values as transcending both constitutional and democratic processes.”

Biden’s executive orders, following the guidelines of the extreme left wing of the Democrat Party, exceed the powers allotted to the president. His order enforcing equity in all federal agencies is massive, restructuring all of American society along lines of equity instead of equality. As described by The Center for Individual Rights, “The order furthers the administration’s effort to embed equity into all aspects of Federal decision-making. Racial equity is a progressive euphemism for racial reparations and preferences in education, hiring, and contracting. Biden is pushing to make the federal government a frank instrument of a racialized radicalism.”

Biden’s actions establishing race and gender criteria are expressly prohibited by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fourteenth Amendment. In addition to violating federal civil rights laws, Biden’s equity plans “are at war with the nation’s very ideals,” says The Heritage Foundation. We could easily witness “a new form of political patronage and corruption through a racial spoils system.”

The president’s unilateral action, said Samantha Chang in Western Journal, “marginalizes white people. This anti-white discrimination isn’t surprising,” she said, “because it’s a pattern with this administration. Demonizing white people and disempowering black people by encouraging them to view themselves as ‘oppressed victims’ will only result in more racial division and societal chaos.”

Jim Thompson, writing in RedState, puts it all in perspective. “Less than three years ago,” says Thompson, “Donald Trump was president, and liberals were calling Trump a tyrant. Yet now they clamor for a president they ‘like’ to act as one, to be a dictator without a moment of reflection. If a modern president ignores the Supreme Court and the Constitution, we would no longer be a republic; we would be ruled by a tyrant.”

“They are calling for Biden to declare himself the final arbiter of what the Constitution means,” said Professor Turley, “and to exercise unilateral executive power without congressional approval. He is to become a government unto himself.” All hail King Joe the First.

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.

Antisemitic college demonstrators should be expelled

Jewish students are being assaulted on American and European campuses with a viciousness that is reminiscent of 1938 Nazi Germany. The demonstrators, many of whom are professional agitators in their 40s who have been trained to cause mayhem, scream “kill the Jews” as they physically prevent Jewish students from attending classes. Jewish students were told to “go back to Poland.” In New York City, Jewish students at Cooper Union sheltered in a library while pro-Palestinian demonstrators banged on its glass windows and doors. Protesters at Tulane University assaulted a Jewish student, breaking his nose.

“This truly has been the worst antisemitism crisis on campus that we have seen for a generation,” said Edward Isaacs, president of the Union of Jewish Students in the UK, “and its impacts run deep throughout the Jewish student population.”

With few notable exceptions, college administrators have coddled the demonstrators instead of expelling them for committing assault, destroying university property and creating an unsafe environment. Local police have been told to stand down instead of enforcing the law.

When it comes to choosing sides between violent antisemitic demonstrators and Jewish students who simply want an education, I am clearly coming to the defense of the innocent students. Instead of hearing angry responses from people who object to the flagrant contempt by the demonstrators for law and order, we have witnessed members of Congress, led by Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Cori Bush (D-Minn.), express their demands that police should protect the violent demonstrators.

Omar and Bush have compared police responses after pro-Hamas protests on campus to the so-called Kent State massacre of May 4, 1970, where four students were killed by the Ohio National Guard. The students in that case were protesting against American military involvement in Vietnam. “On the 54th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre, students across our country are being brutalized for standing up to endless war,” Bush tweeted on X. “Our country must learn to actually uphold the rights of free speech & assembly upon which it was founded. Solidarity with our students.”

Are we denying the free speech and assembly rights of the demonstrators? The real question is, should we protect speech when it becomes violent? The answer is straightforward. When violence occurs, it is no longer about protecting free speech—the rule of law must be upheld. “Violence, vandalism, and antisemitic harassment and intimidation are not free speech and those engaging in this behavior should be held accountable,” read a statement from Congressman Adam Schiff’s office.

When it comes to free speech, the pro-Hamas protestors are intolerant of opposing points-of-view. One student at Columbia University made that clear when she expressed sympathy with pro-Palestinian protesters and not with students of opposing views. “At the end of the day,” she said, “I don’t want a relationship with students who don’t support the cause.” Free speech for me but not for thee.

Many of the current crop of demonstrators who are physically assaulting Jewish students, shouting “death to the Jews,” believe they have the right to exercise violence in support of their views and think they should bear no consequences for their violent actions. They are upset at the prospect of being suspended or expelled. Most of them wear keffiyeh and Covid masks, presumably to protect their future Goldman Sachs job prospects.

“I think that the university needs to start with dismissing all their charges against the students if they want to rebuild trust,” said a deluded student at Columbia. Alex Morey, director of campus rights advocacy at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, disagreed. “That doesn’t mean that students are immune from the consequences of their actions,” Morey said. “You don’t want to see cops in riot gear descend on peaceful student protests. But if they’re breaking the rules and engaging in civil disobedience … sometimes that’s what has to happen,” she says.

Beating up Jewish students and destroying campus property do not come under the heading of civil disobedience. They constitute a flagrant contempt for law and order. Such activities must be stopped right at the outset. Jewish students across America are terrified, as they should be. They will not feel safe on their college campuses as long as hateful, antisemitic rhetoric, violence or intimidation go unaddressed.

Violent, antisemitic demonstrators deserve to be arrested, put in jail, and then expelled from the university. Campus administrators like Minouche Shafik at Columbia who attempt to negotiate with the neo-Nazis are doing a disservice to our republic. University leaders should take “personal responsibility” for protecting Jewish students on campus, said UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. This is not 1938 and we must not give an inch to the haters.
