Purely political false prosecution, Trump did nothing wrong.

Welcome To America's French Revolution

America now has three potential futures and two are bad...

We are in a Jacobin Revolution of the sort that in 1793-94 nearly
destroyed France. And things are getting scary.

The Democratic Party vanished sometime in 2020.

It was absorbed by hard-left ideologues.

They were bent on radically altering, or hijacking, existing
institutions to force radical, equality-of-result agendas that
otherwise do not earn majority support.

The American people want affordable power and fuel and energy autonomy.

They do not want a Green New Deal that results in dependence on the
Middle East.

They want fiscal sobriety, not a permanent stagflationary economy
marked by bank failures, soaring interest rates, crony capitalism, and
subsidies for those who choose not to work.

They know no country can exist without a border, much less while
offering blank checks to foreign cartels that kill 100,000 Americans

They demand realist deterrence abroad, not the current woke military
whose erosion is spelling the end American credibility and global

Racialists are eerily embracing discredited Neo-Confederate notions of
racial chauvinism, discrimination, segregation, and the old-one-drop
rule of racial obsession. They are turning America toward a Balkanized

To implement such an unpopular program, the new Left must radically
alter our institutions.

So the “Democrats” periodically threaten to pack the courts, end the
filibuster, destroy the Electoral College, and override the states’
prerogatives to establish balloting laws.

They deny the committee assignments of the House minority leader. They
engage in stunts like tearing up the State of the Union address on
national television. With impunity they mob the homes of Supreme Court
justices to leverage their decisions.

This revolution is run by elites and is a top-down operation.

University deans all but prompt students to disrupt invited campus
speakers. District attorneys release violent arrested criminals
without bail. Woke generals call their Chinese counterparts to warn
them against their own commander-in-chief.

The Pentagon lectures the country on its supposed innate racism—even
as the United States continues to lose wars abroad, abandons billions
of dollars of equipment to terrorists, and allows communist China to
surveille domestic American military bases with complete impunity.

Words change their meanings. “Racist” now means “don’t dare object.”
“White” became the pejorative stereotype used by racists. “Diversity”
means tired orthodoxy. “Equity” is a synonym for bias. “Inclusion”
ensures exclusion.

Institutions are no longer recognizable. The FBI as we knew it no
longer exists. Three former FBI directors either lied under oath to
federal investigators, or pleaded amnesia in congressional

Our highest former national intelligence officers lied under oath to
the Senate. The IRS is weaponized against political opponents of the
Democrats. The Department of Justice is more likely to send the FBI
after grammar school parents than mobs threatening the homes of
Supreme Court justices.

Still, to thoroughly erase America, our Jacobins must radically alter
our customs and traditions.

So under the cover of the COVID quarantines, Election Day was made
irrelevant. In the new America, 70 percent did not vote on the
designated day but, fueled by third-party vote harvesting and
relaxation of audits of non-Election-Day ballots, extended the vote
over a period of several weeks.

Like the Jacobins, names and dates had to be radically transformed.
1619, not 1776, is now America’s birthdate and, we are told, it was an
ignominious one.

Statues are toppled, careers Trotskyized.

Biological males suddenly have hijacked women’s sports—destroying five
decades of women’s hard-won efforts to achieve equal treatment and
respect in athletics.

What triggered the collective madness and this Jacobin takeover?

The Left’s perfect storm of the 120 days of riot, death, arson and
looting of 2020? The COVID pandemic? The disastrous two-year lockdown?
The 2016 election of the outsider Donald Trump?

All those catalysts and more.

As the country collapses under leftist nihilism, the revolution’s last
gasp is to destroy Donald Trump—by empowering him. That is, the
leftist legal vendetta is designed to win him just enough empathy to
be nominated the Republican Party’s presidential candidate, but then
to keep on indicting, gagging, and hemorrhaging him legally until
Election Day 2024.

Trump was the first president to be impeached twice, to be tried by
the Senate as a private citizen, and to have his private home raided
by the FBI. Now he is the first president to have been indicted,
effectively ending America’s moral authority abroad.

America now has three potential futures and two are bad.

    First, the Jacobins have two more years to finish what they
started as the founders’ dream descends into our worst nightmare.

    Second, the revolution has so warped our legal system, our voting
on Election Day, and the FBI, the CIA, the Justice Department, and the
IRS, that even a despised, unpopular Left will “win” elections.

    The third is that New York prosecutor Alan Bragg has jumped the
shark. His pathetic prosecution is so patently incoherent, illiberal,
and in spirit anti-American, that two-thirds of the country will soon
conclude the center is not holding. The Jacobins’ reign of terror is
unsustainable. And so in 2024 the Left will not be defeated, but so
defeated so that it is utterly discredited.

The choice is ours.
