America’s descent to banana republic status, with the ruling regime having its principal opponent arrested on bogus charges, looks as if it is going to happen this week. The New York City Police Department (NYPD) was busy on Monday setting up steel barriers outside the Manhattan Criminal Court as if it fully expects (and may even be hoping for) patriots to come out in force to protest against the destruction of our free republic and the weaponization of our justice system as a tool of partisan politics. No one seems to be backing away from the brink.
Soros-funded Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg seems determined to make history by arresting Trump, but House Republicans on Monday were standing athwart history, shouting “Stop!” and demanding that Bragg give them all the documents related to his investigation of Trump. Will they be able to stop the arrest? The republic itself could hang in the balance.
Meanwhile, preparations are proceeding apace. Robert Costa of CBS News on Monday tweeted three videos of “Steel barricades arriving outside Manhattan Criminal Court.” This comes after NBC News reported on Friday that “local, state and federal law enforcement and security agencies are preparing for the possibility” of Trump’s arrest, with the NYPD, the Secret Service, and even the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) all involved.
In Washington, the Capitol Police are gearing up for riots as well. According to Politico: “The Capitol Police are girding for the possibility of protests ahead of the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump, according to two people familiar with the situation. Their security posture will be elevated starting Tuesday morning, the people said, and bicycle rack-type fencing could also be deployed.”
The JTTF’s involvement immediately calls to mind Old Joe Biden’s statement from his infamous red-and-black speech from last Sept. 1: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

That’s the closest an American president has ever come in the history of the United States to declaring that his primary opponent and his supporters were criminals who were outside the bounds of acceptable political discourse, and now the ruling elites seem ready to take the next step, not only of arresting Trump but of behaving as if his supporters were terrorists. After all, Biden, Gestapo chief Merrick Garland, and the FBI have all told us that “white supremacists” constitute the greatest terror threat the nation faces today. The only thing lacking in their scenario is actual white supremacist terrorists.
That’s where Trump’s supporters come in; Leftists are rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of protests against Trump’s arrest that they can weaponize the way they did Jan. 6, so as to continue their efforts to criminalize political dissent in the United States.
Trying to put the brakes on this effort and save the concept of the loyal opposition in the country formerly known as the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave are House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer, and House Administration Committee chairman Bryan Steil. According to a Monday report in the Daily Caller, they’re asking Bragg to “provide all documents and communications involving his investigation into Trump, as well as sit for a transcribed interview.”
In a letter to Bragg, Jordan, Comer, and Steil don’t mince words: “You are reportedly about to engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority: the indictment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office. This indictment comes after years of your office searching for a basis—any basis—on which to bring charges, ultimately settling on a novel legal theory untested anywhere in the country and one that federal authorities declined to pursue.”
They charged that Bragg was pursuing a “politically motivated prosecution,” which is certainly true, and point out that “even the Washington Post quoted ‘legal experts’ as calling your actions ‘unusual’ because ‘prosecutors have repeatedly examined the long-established details but decided not to pursue charges.’”
Will Bragg comply with their requests and hand over the relevant documents? The New York City authorities are acting as if they believe that even if he does, nothing is going to stand in the way of their determination to give their rabid Leftist base what it has been slavering for: photos of a handcuffed Trump doing the perp walk, being fingerprinted, maybe even (oh glorious day!) behind bars.
This is not the way the Constitutional republic that the Founding Fathers bequeathed to us was ever supposed to work. The Democrats, having spent decades hollowing out our Constitutional protections, are now planning on doing a victory dance upon their empty shell and casting any people who dare to protest in their next Reichstag Fire production, as we all descend merrily on our way to becoming a one-party state. Can the House Republicans stop them? We can hope.
Spurwing Plover says
I hope this whole thing blows up in the face of the DNC and the M.S. Media as w ell as the Globalists I hope this Witch Hunt Backfires on them all that includes the CFR and the UN as well.
Mo de Profit says
This Brit is with you on this, I hope and pray that the establishment thugs do not start another “insurrection”
Robert suggested that America would become a banana republic if Trump is arrested.
In my opinion your government became a banana republic on January 6th and there’s so little evidence that anyone seems to care.
No one in power seems to care.
We out here care. We care. We cry. But people are afraid to exercise their 1A because it’s agreed just about universally that the government is corrupt. Those barricades? They’re for Feds fessed as Trump supporters, crisis actors and Antifa. Whatever you see happen, it’s theatre. But in avoiding being framed and jailed or shot or beaten to death, we lose our first amendment right. We have already lost our vote.
Dressed as ( excuse typo)
David Ray says
And now footage has come to light that FBI agents dressed in full MAGA gear were identifying themselves to a DC cop. (The cop had been canvassing the area & asked their business.)
So now that the cat’s outta the bag, leftists have to lie harder to us.
(Couldn’t resist the pun.)
Jeff Bargholz says
F, I hope so too. We have to fight back against their tyranny.
angelo barbato says
One can only hope at this stage!
According to analysts it is a WIN-WIN situation for Trump: if arrested it will greatly increase his popularity and assure his reelection.
If not arrested it will show how powerful he is against the Globalists.
Yesterday I forgot to add this to Mr Spencer’s article on Zelensky and the UKRAINIAN ORTHODOX church.
In it he was wrong.The article appeared in “The American Conservative”, of ROD DREHER, Conservative, Christian,author of
“Live Not by Lies: A Manual for Christian Dissidents” (2020) ( great book,against the WOKISTS)
The article is by a UKRAINIAN journalist living in KIEV,under a pseudonym,YEVHEN HERMAN(for his safety) ( article Jan 25, 2023 )
” In 1990, the Russian church GRANTED full administrative INDEPENDENCE to its Ukrainian bishops under the name of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.
Although many call it the “Moscow Patriarchate”
by inertia, it is a COMPLETELY independent structure in terms of GOVERNANCE.
The Ukrainian Orthodox Church elects its primate and bishops on its own with NO regard for MOSCOW.
There is NO “Moscow Patriarchate” in its OFFICIAL name.”
In today’s Frontpagemag there was an article by KENNETH TIMMERMAN saying that yes,Saddam Hussein had WMD in 2003, it is a lie of the Left he did not.
It is “The Gulf War: 20 Years Later”
Timmerman writes about it in his 2022 book ” And the Rest is History: Tales of Hostages, Arms Dealers, Dirty Tricks, and Spies,” includes detailed accounts of his encounters with the heads of Saddam Hussein’s WMD programs.
The WIKIPEDIA article on him says:
“On February 7, 2006, Sweden’s former deputy prime minister and Liberal party leader Per Ahlmark said that he had
nominated Timmerman for a Nobel Peace Prize along
with UN Ambassador John Bolton for
warnings and documentation of IRANS’ SECRET
nuclear buildup and revealing Iran’s repeated lying and false reports to the International Atomic Energy Agency.”
NOTICE the YEAR…..2006 and country of IRAN.
Knowledge is Power.
Again:In today’s Frontpagemag there was an article by KENNETH TIMMERMAN saying that yes,Saddam Hussein had WMD in 2003, it is a lie of the Left he did not.
It is “The Gulf War: 20 Years Later”.In 2006 Timmerman said IRAN was secretly making a NUCLEAR bomb, Trust but verify:
In the channel of GARLAND NIXON,pro-multipolar world youtuber,Leftist,he interviewed
former CIA analyst,and a famous and honest one,RAY MCGOVERN,who is NO Leftist.he was
the top CIA analyst to the White House, about the SOVIET UNION,in his time.
A) He said that in NOVEMBER 2007 the intelligence official of the State Department TOM FINGER, an honest analyst,wrote what is called a National Intelligence Estimate,based
on the LATEST data then.
BUSH wanted to start a WAR with IRAN. The report said:
“Iran is NOT working on a NUCLEAR weapon,we say this UNANIMOUSLY and with HIGH confidence.”
B) And so Bush in a MEMOIR he wrote,referring to the report, said:” This DEPRIVED me of the military option against Iran.How could I JUSTIFY the BOMBING of a country
the INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY says is NOT working on a nuclear program.”
David Ray says
This Soros puppet is pure scum grifting for propaganda footage.
Any MAGA patriots should be prepared that woke cops will do anything and everything to provoke a riot, (or perceived riot) – just like they did on Jan 6th when they maliciously attacked the well behaved Trump supporters.
Steven Brizel says
Bragg has treated all law abiding citizens with contempt and politicized his office as a weapon to get Trump
If these charges against Trump are put on hold (the Dems won’t drop completely) then they will undoubtedly spin it as MAGA Republican intimidation.
I read Trump asked for a petition to be signed against he being arrested.Good move.
If it were a CROWD of MAGA protesters on the street, then this would happen:
the CIA and FBI would put in INFILTRATORS who will start to burn,destroy.The CIA does that in OTHER countries also,
via the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR DEMOCRACY.CIA front,publicly-funded by the US government.They are called COLOR revolutions,it happened in Ukraine in 2014, a COUP d’ETAT.
Then the Globalists would use that violence as evidence for a NEW trial against Trump,inciting insurrection.Throw him in jail.
The blog “The American Conservative” has good articles.Recently this by an IRANIAN convert to Christianity SOHRAB AHMARI.
Sohrab Ahmari is a founder and editor of COMPACT magazine.
His books include “From Fire, by Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith” ( 2019) and “The Unbroken Thread: Discovering the Wisdom of Tradition in an Age of Chaos”(2021).
He has written about BUSH and how he is a CRIMINAL,in an article “A Criminal President” ( March 21,2023)
Considering how little support Trump got from the RINOs when he was in office, I am not surprised at the wall of silence coming from them now.
I am rapidly losing interest in the Republican party. What a bunch of wimps.
Especially Republicans in the Senate.
Wanda Stout says
Come on Republicans do all you can to stop this evil totalitarian regime. 👀😭💔🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏
Democrats in media are also showing the excitement of seeing Donald Trump arrested and the hope that the police can bash some heads of his supporters. Check ABC news on line as an example and you can feel their joy of the prospect.
Robert O'Donnell says
“The republic itself could hang in the balance.”
The “republic itself” died on Jan 6, 2021. It’s been dead for over two years now. What we are witnessing is the stench of decay.
We’re past “MAGA”. We’re onto “Make America America Again”, as this isn’t America anymore. It’s a corrupt criminally run syndicate.
Steve Chavez says
DANIEL ORTEGA, PRESIDENT OF NICARAGUA SINCE 1979, AND HELPED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA, THE SOVIET KGB, AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, has been arresting ALL opponents due to “a threat to Democracy.” The President-for-Life spread his ideology throughout Central America, again with the help of The Democratic/Communist Party, with their aid to Communist FMLN rebels in El Salvador.
MANUEL ZELAYA, president of Honduras, declared he wanted to be President for Life and his own Supreme Court and Vice-President, EXPELLED HIM FROM THE COUNTRY! The only leaders coming to his defense were Hugo Chavez, who all arrested all opponents, Daniel Ortega, AND HILLARY AND OBAMA, NOW ARRESTING AND TARGETING ALL OPPONENTS AS “A THREAT TO DEMOCRACY!”
HISTORY will record these (D)ictators and their targeting of all opponents using the departments headed by the same and who even conspired in a coup attempt AGAINST A SITTING PRESIDENT…. AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT!
IN THE MEANTIME, HUNTER AND THE BIG GUY, ARE OFF LIMITS!
“The FBI, DOJ, and MSM look at Trump under an ELECTRON MICROSCOPE while they look at the Biden’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s, and Democrats, with a BACKWARDS HUBBLE TELESCOPE!”
Onzeur Trante says
Depressing news has been on the menu since the current resident of the WH was installed, but the current story of the day about Trump is probably the most depressing of them all. Not only because it is unjust to former President Trump but also because it signals the no turning back demise of the country. Without rule of law and equal justice for all or fair elections, there is no United States; an indictment of Trump will be the rubber stamp for that.
Steve Chavez says
THEY HAVE THE VOTES, THEY RUN THE SHOW, IT’S MOB RULE NOW!

Donald Trump tweet, December 18, 2019.
Bragg is more lawless than the hoods he lets out.
Walter Sieruk says
The people in high power of the left-wing are a very slanderous of very most despicable sort.
One lie of the leftist is that President Trump attempted to organize “his domestic terrorists” Donald Trump had never organized, supported terrorists of any kind.
The other lie is that the American patriots who had been falsely and unjustly arrested in the schemed left wing set up in Washington DC on January 6,2021.are “domestic terrorists.”
Those leftist are also very inconsistent and hypocritical because she refuses to recognizing who the real domestic terrorists are, which are the vicious violent Marxists lawless malicious criminals who make up Antifa and BLM.
High power left wing of slanderous leftist Trump organize the supported terrorists of inconsistent hypocritical.
Real terrorists be my mommy Nancy please help me Nancy antifa come get me BLM blurp blurp blurp “domestic” me use quotation mark make me smart.
Despicable deplorable patriot America falsely falsely arrested arrested scheme me no like very bad. Leftist is she cos I vicious Marxist “quotation marks” me good very slanderous.
Recognizing malicious criminal I been was not so good writer.
I always laugh when Brit losers try to write in blackface.
Losers very me know bad bad, terrorist never Trump got scheme, like me not so much writer good bad.
You aren’t even funny. But that silly gibberish is not that much different from your faux serious gibberish.
As Blackadder said so well: You are embarrassing yourself to the World at large, just a wee a soy boy
Me Sieruk write terrorist organize Trump very bad patriots despicable slanderous.
rocco barbella says
As usual, the actual corrupt criminals: The Biden family, Obama, Clintons, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Pelosi, etc, can get away with whatever they please. The Democrats have played the game with no rules, being corrupt, fraudulent, and doing whatever it takes to win. That means fabricating stories, hoaxes and arresting a former president. Even it the Democrats don’t like each other, for the most part, they all stick together.
Contrast that with the party of no backbone and no balls aka the Republican Party, whose still playing under the Marques of Queensberry rules, while the Democrats lie, cheat and steal. Do you really have to wonder why the Republicans are constantly getting their asses handed to them?
A good percentage of Republicans are not conservatives. They are masquerading as conservatives, but they vote in line with Democrats Romney, Cheney, Kinzinger, Markowski and a host of other frauds.
Arrest Trump on made up paper crimes, but ignore the real crimes committed by the Biden’s and Clinton’s.
This country is f’n pathetic. Yes, it is a banana republic. I hope every liberal POS dies a slow and agonizingly painful death.
This is going to be so much fun. Trump will finally be held accountable and sent to jail where he belongs, the MAGA chimps’ heads will explode simultaneously en masse, and the treason monkeys will attempt to riot and insurrect and be mowed down by FBI bullets.
You are the sickest, pathetic, most mentally tortured person on this site. You revel in the misery of others. You hope for the death of the Right at the hands of our weak little pronoun army. And here I thought you told me that you don’t know if Trump will go to jail, over at American Greatness. And now you doing the ‘dance of joy’.
You are the one with the wet dream insurrection fantasies. So will it be those M60’s that no one uses anymore or will it be those M4s, that everyone in America owns? You see, in a real fight the people are evenly matched with the FBI. Your FBI girly man fantasies are amazing. No wonder they show up unannounced at 6:AM with guns drawn and wake us up. Such tough guys. The FBI is one of the most hated agencies in the country at this point. It is more like the Stasi. And Chris Wray is a total pussy. The government and the Left is scared to death of Trump, as are you.
And you know how I know you live in England? The time stamp on this post says March 23, 2023 at 12:47 am. The funny thing is today is March 22 in the U.S..
You are a statist fan boy in love with his own faux tough guy personae. But you can’t buy a gun in that dink P.O.S. country of yours….and that is your real problem. Gun ownership and freedom envy. Bugger off.
I certainly revel in the miseries of traitors. Trump is a traitor, so I rejoice in his misery. His treason monkey idolators are also traitors, so I hail their misery and hope it continues. Let the full force of the government come down on them and the FBI’s hail of bullets send them off where they belong so they leave the rest of us alone.
I revel in your misery and jealousy knowing you will never be apart of what goes on in this country. You are loser Brit who revels in pronouncing people guilty before an indictment or a charge has been brought, or a trial has taken place.
In fact, why bother with all of that. Since you are a fan of summary executions let’s just move ahead with that. Do you get a little tingle in your dingle when you think of that, or are you simply the lame troll you appear to be devolving into.
Thank God you don’t live in my country. Must be tough not being able to pull the trigger yourself.
I’ve long said I was in favor of summary executions on J6, or J7 for that matter. Traitors need to be dealt with quickly or they come back for more. Fortunately, the treason monkeys are LARPing cowards like you, so their Orange Gorilla will go down, screaming no doubt, but without his insurrection.
So are you man enough to do those summary executions, or like all girly man cowards like you, do you hand off the wet work to the real men.
You are such a Britaninny
I’ll hand over the wet work to you Queen Toughy-Tough, but only after you transition. Do the tutu dance, toughy-tough!
Andrew Blackadder says
Marlow You are mercifully free from the ravages of intelligence as you scream about something you know nothing about and don’t even live in America, neither do I though Im an American Citizen, however just like the rest of your merry gang of morons you cannot come with a reason to Jail Trump or perhaps you just don’t like the fact that he is THE most Anti War President that I can think of.
You are embarrassing yourself to the World at large, just a wee a soy boy…
Trump should be jailed because he’s a traitor. He is guilty of sedition, incitement, insurrection, and treason. The only reason he’s not in jail yet is fear of his treason monkeys, but now that you’ve been shown to be LARPing cowards, that appears to have passed. This heroic NY DA will join my hero Michael Byrd on Mt. Rushmore. Hallelujah!
So you support a murderer and now, a Soros appointed DA who’s case appears to be falling apart.
Are you related in anyway to Lavrentiy “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” Beria? late of the Soviet Union who was the secret police chief in Joseph Stalin’s reign of terror in Russia and Eastern Europe. You would have fit in perfectly there….a little slimy Soviet apparatchik, dancing around on the bodies of the people you blithely condemn in your wet dream fantasy of an FBI hail of bullets.
It didn’t end to well for Beria. When his death sentence was passed in 1953, according to General Moskalenko, Beria fell to the floor and begged on his knees for mercy. It was not a quality he had shown to others, and it was not now shown to him. He and his confederates were taken away and promptly shot. No doubt in that hail of bullets you fantasize about.
I fantasize about you meeting a similar end, Mr. Toughy Tough. You are a pathetic troll.
I support two heros. The first a traitorcide who should be on Mt. Rushmore, the second a heroic crusader who will, at very long last, bring a traitor to justice. Sorry if that gets your panties in a twist Queen Toughy-Tough. Go tutu dance around the kitchen a bit, you’ll feel better.
Some thing tells me you will meet that similar end. The next time you try to pick up the wrong guy in some crappy bar.
I aint the closet case here, Queen Toughy-Tough.
