While I still do not want to admit it, I am, at least, beginning to think that, yes, the Democrats may actually end up succeeding with this attempt of theirs to pull off what will be the most blatant act of election theft in all of human history. What they were able to do was something that was never supposed to be possible in the United States, and yet it was. Americans were supposed to be above such behavior. And if the Democrats do succeed in this endeavor, while there will likely be some short-term gains, I can only hope that over the long term they will ultimately be made to pay.
And even as the president’s legal team continues to dispute election results in numerous battleground states, with large numbers of questionable mail-in ballots and election anomalies, Establishment Washington is busying itself with the pushing of Donald Trump out the door. What it failed to accomplish through four years of Deep State sabotage and bipartisan efforts at thwarting the Trump agenda, they may have finally succeeded through good old-fashioned vote fraud. But will it prove to be a victory the cost of which the victors never really saw coming. We can only hope!
It is my fervent hope that forcing Donald Trump from the presidency, while over half of all likely voters (including a stunning one-third of Democrats) believe the election was stolen from him, will eventually come to backfire on the Democrats, and rather spectacularly so. President Trump is too ferocious a competitor and too powerful a cultural force to simply disappear into a retirement not of his choosing. At least 75 million Americans voted for the president because, among other reasons, he is seen as an “outsider.” Now Democrats seem insistent upon making him a martyr, as well.
So what is it that might happen when or if President Trump is forced from office come January 20? There can be no doubt that he will instantly become the most consequential and powerful ex-president Americans have seen, dwarfing even ‘BO’. Making Donald Trump a one-term president could prove to be the Democrats’ biggest nightmare. In a way it was ‘BO’ who set a new precedent for former presidents. ‘BO’ has been the most vocal ex-president to date, both questioning Donald Trump’s judgment as president, as well as fanning the flames of the debunked Russia hoax.
And I just don’t see Donald Trump choosing to quietly retreat from public life, leaving his successor to lead free from any future criticism. And I think we can all be pretty confident that there will likely be no shortage of opportunities for the former president to criticize. ‘Creepy Joe’s commitment to re-enter the Paris Agreement and backtrack from America’s energy independence achieved under President Trump will take an American economy struggling to recover from a year of pandemic lockdowns and kill it overnight. And Donald Trump will loudly blame his successor.
‘Creepy Joe’ has also made very clear his intent to breathe new life into ‘BO’s failed Iran Deal after the Trump administration has spent four years working to weaken Iran’s influence in the Middle East and has helped to foster peace in the region by securing trade deals between Israel and many of her longtime adversaries that were nothing less than historic, with President Trump having been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. And should ‘Creepy Joe’ lift up a vulnerable Iran and harm Israel in the process, Donald Trump could again loudly blame his successor, and rightly so.
President Trump has made cutting illegal immigration into the United States a top priority. He’s made renegotiating trade deals that have tended to benefit Communist China at the expense of American workers a priority. He’s made bringing troops home by ending “endless wars” a priority. He’s made protecting Americans’ First and Second Amendment rights important priorities. Meanwhile, ‘Creepy Joe’ has promised to expand immigration and refugee resettlement, to end trade confrontations with China, and to leave foreign policy to the so-called ‘experts.’
And in direct conflict with any oath of office, ‘Creepy Joe’ has also gone as far as to promise to confiscate Americans’ guns while supporting the same Big Tech companies that have undertaken campaigns of outright censorship against conservatives’ speech. Donald Trump will, I have no doubt, loudly blame his successor for the resulting harm — in all its forms — to the American people. The former president and his millions of supporters will amplify every misstep made by ‘Creepy Joe’ Biden. “Monday morning quarterbacking” will become a 24/7/365 priority for the former president.
And if the RINOs believe they will be able to reclaim their party once President Trump leaves office, I believe they are taking part in some serious wishful thinking. Donald Trump just won more votes than any sitting president in history. Even before the 2020 election’s outcome has been decisively concluded, recent polling shows that 54% of Republican voters are ready to back President Trump in 2024. Even more striking is that nearly 70% of Republicans view the president as standing up for their beliefs, as opposed to only 20% who see congressional Republicans as doing the same thing.
If Donald Trump does decide he’s running again in 2024, I believe that it will be his nomination to lose. Donald Trump has shined a bright light on Establishment Washington’s failures to secure America’s borders and to protect America’s blue-collar manufacturing workforce. That bright light is not going to fade, and any Republican who thinks the party can return to propping up free trade’s twin mantras of endless immigration and overseas slave labor by proxy is simply denying reality. For sure, if “globalism” wasn’t a dirty word before, President Trump has made it one now.
Now I do fear that if President Trump is forced from office courtesy of what was a grossly tainted election, it still won’t be enough to satisfy either the Democrats or the many NeverTrumpers that we have in Washington. There can be no doubt that it will be very shortly after leaving office that every liberal legal hound will be unleashed upon the former president, instructed to dig up and/or to manufacture, all manner of supposed ‘crimes’ that can then be used to prosecute him, if for no other reason than to dissuade him from even considering another run in 2024. We must stand by him!
