What Matters Most Is Taking Back the White House in 2024

Published

on

There is no question that former President Donald Trump has been subjected to a double standard attack resulting in two indictments, and there are possible Georgia and January 6th indictments yet to come. As with the Russian collusion nightmare, he probably will find his way through the legal challenges, but most likely he will be locked in defending himself on many fronts for months.

While Hillary Clinton can destroy cell phones and emails and President Joe Biden can have classified documents in numerous locations dating back to his time as senator and vice president, Donald Trump continues to have a target on his chest. It is unfair. It is maddening, and many of his supporters are mad as hell about how the leading Republican candidate can again be targeted in such an obviously political move by the Department of Justice.

President Trump is a fighter, and his legal team will no doubt launch a vigorous defense. There most certainly will be a motion to dismiss this case under the Presidential Records Act. Even if that fails and he must go to court, eventually appeals may very well reverse any conviction once it reaches the Supreme Court. But the time involved could seriously hamper Trump’s campaign to regain the White House.

Now that the indictment has been made public, there are indications that this indictment will result in a protracted and messy trial. It’s obvious that some of Trump’s actions have contributed to the difficulty he now faces. His arrogance and dismissive reactions to government requests may add to his popularity and success in campaigning, but they may now contribute to his demise.

As with many successful political prosecutions, it’s seldom the initial decisions themselves but the false statements and careless actions that follow that give validity to the indictment. There is reported audio recording evidence that Trump showed classified documents to people without a security clearance. He reportedly admitted that the documents were still classified because he had not declassified them before leaving the White House.

Even after the National Archives continued to demand Trump hand over classified documents, when the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago, they found another 102 classified documents. In other words, Trump had withheld classified documents. There are also many damning statements from testimony by many of Trump’s past lawyers.

The prosecutor reports that he wants a speedy trial, but legal maneuvers take time. The former President could continue to run for office, and If Trump or another Republican wins the 2024 presidential election, he could even be pardoned. Many pundits are already saying that this indictment by the DOJ will actually help Trump’s campaign. His supporters are angry and motivated, but what will a string of indictments do to the support form independents who Trump needs to win.

There is no question that Trump deserves our support in going through this ordeal, but an important question remains. Is Trump the candidate to bring forward for the 2024 presidential election? There is no question that Trump is a lightening rod for many liberal citizens. Many voted for Joe Biden in 2020 to defeat the hated Trump! There is no evidence that the hatred of Trump has in any way dissipated. If anything, the current indictments just provide more evidence to fuel their disdain.

After all, Trump is easy to hate. His impulsive attacks and arrogance are often on display. As a result, even though he is being treated unfairly, he very well may not be the right candidate to endorse for 2024. Many democrats privately share that they would rather face Trump; he’s a lightning rod that brings out their base and fuels their fundraising. Biden’s many weaknesses may make him a weak candidate, but there is no guarantee that Biden will be the democrat’s standard bearer. Much can happen in the coming months.

There are numerous republican candidates who have joined the race. It’s important to let the campaigns play out without letting Trump’s indictments, no matter how unfair, result in a premature coronation. It’s time to let the right candidate earn the right to represent the GOP the old fashion way—by getting the votes in state primaries. If it be former President Trump, so be it. If it is Governor DeSantis or another, we need to be ready to support them. This election is too important to do it any other way.

Voters want to know what candidates will do to secure our border and slow the flow of illegal aliens, how they’ll support law and order and curtail rampant crime in our big cities, how they’ll slow government growth and lower inflation, and whether they’ll support school choice and energy independence taking advantage of all our natural resources. It’s the issues that matter the most to the future of America that must guide our selection.

We must not lose focus. This election is critical. We not only want a president we can count on; we want to elect a majority of representatives and senators to deliver on what they promise.

Many Americans voted for Donald Trump in the last two elections, and many certainly would vote for him again if he is the GOP candidate. But many do not think he is the best candidate to take back the White House. Let the election process play out and then let us work together to elect the candidate best positioned to win!

America No More…

Published

on

After watching with over a hundred others the newly released movie, Civil War, I left the theater stunned, and I was not alone. Was it a good movie? Just a deeply unsettling one! Could it really happen? You don’t even want to imagine it! But with Biden’s assault on America continuing and Trump reemerging as the favored GOP candidate, the American division is growing. More and more citizens are getting angrier as their standard of living is in jeopardy and illegals are getting benefits citizens can only dream of.

Spoiling the movie’s plot is never appropriate, but when Western forces from Texas, Florida, and even California take on the elected President, the country is left in a civil war. We watch as desensitized media professionals cover the death of hundreds of American citizens. To the film’s media, the war is just a once-in-a-lifetime story that deserves to be captured one picture at a time. After all, it’s the media’s job. They are just feeding citizens what they want—blood, gore, winners, and victims. What would happen if America descends into such chaos? This movie provides one disturbing view, one that, God help us, must never happen.

One thing is clear, when a country loses trust in its leader’s ability to preserve their cherished freedoms and ensure equal treatment under the law, even insurrection seems somehow possible. That is a nightmare no American should have to entertain, but more and more Americans seem to be losing hope in the future of our country. They don’t trust elections. Many don’t even like the Presidential choices presented to them.

The Founding Fathers valued freedom enough to unleash a revolution against the greatest power at the time. Enough citizens joined them in securing what most at the time believed impossible, independence. Yes, insurrection hatched our beloved America. Belief in equal rights and freedom are powerful forces that have always driven patriotic Americans to action.


Even with our differences, most Americans believe in property rights, voting rights, law enforcement to keep us safe, freedom of speech, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, more and more Americans feel these values are in question, and they are not sure America can be saved!

Many Americans no longer even believe that elections will produce a lawful winner. They don’t trust the voting machines. They want paper ballots that can be counted. They don’t believe multiple days are needed. Hasn’t one day of voting always been enough? They want required IDs and signed mail-in ballots. They fear ballot harvesting is just another name for ‘manufacturing” all the votes you need to ensure a fraudulent victory. Are American fair elections no more!

Many no longer believe that the enforcement of law is fair and sure. While former President Donald Trump has been charged with multiple “crimes,” President Joe Biden’s similar actions aren’t even charged. Hunter Biden’s influence peddling with money set aside for the “Big Guy” are not even covered in the mainstream media. The Dept. of Justice is quick to charge Trump, but with the Bidens, we hear nothing but crickets. People who commit crimes are being let go instead of being held accountable. Is American law and order no more!

Under President Trump, our border was finally more under control. Under Biden, his open border has been continually flooding our country with illegals from around the world. They come expecting benefits at the expense of taxpaying citizens. Illegals overwhelm services in our urban areas. Legal immigrants had to wait years to enter and are fuming at this invasion of illegals rushing to the front of the line and expecting to be accepted, supported, and allowed to become citizens. Is America’s secure border no more!

We thought in America, your home was your castle. If you work to buy the home of your dreams, you were sure that your property rights were secure in a community that you loved. But today, squatters are taking over vacant homes and fending off owners who want them to leave their property. Illegals are being told to come to America, find an empty home, and move in. In the name of equity, governments are rezoning the suburbs and requiring the building of low-income housing where it is not wanted. Are America’s property rights no more!

Do you believe America is lost? Do you believe nothing can reverse this march to chaos? Do you believe that it is time to buy your own guns to protect your family when the government won’t? Is a civil war coming? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in danger of losing the optimistic attitude that has characterized Americans for two centuries. This is our country. This is not the time for surrender. It’s time to fight to preserve America the best way you can—vote for candidates who promise to preserve the rights you value most.

Your vote does matter. There are no perfect candidates, but the party positions make a difference in this critical election. If you want law and order, secure borders, fair elections, property rights, and a return to personal responsibility, there is only one party to support. Vote for every GOP candidate you are given the opportunity to support, or it may very well be America no more!
