Soon after he announced his run for President in June of 2015, the Democrats – along with their obedient lap dogs in the media – went after then New York City businessman Donald J. Trump hammer and tongs.
In collusion with elements of the “Deep State” within our own Federal government, fabricated accusation after fabricated accusation was hurled at then candidate Trump. Once he was elected President, the left’s smear machine went into overdrive.
The main reason being that “They” – meaning the Democrats, the entrenched Republican-elites, and the Deep State – could not control him. Ever. President Trump was not part of the DC “Club” or “Cabal.”
He didn’t need their fawning approval nor their special interest connections or money. He was in it to put forth what he believed to be the best policy initiatives designed to benefit the vast majority of the American people. Most especially the working and middle-class.
As far as President Trump was concerned, it was: “Damn the partisan; special interest; and corrupt-liberal-media torpedoes. Full speed ahead.”
Except…if you are instituting policies to help protect the vast majority of the American people, you will invariably expose numerous politicians as outright frauds, while identifying countless organizations and individuals greedily feeding from the tax-payer trough at the direct expense of the American people.
As the entrenched-elites in it for the power, the money, or petrified that they would soon be exposed as the charlatans they are could not have that, the “Russian Collusion” hoax was created in the darkest, most putrid shadows of the DC sewers and rolled out on multiple liberal, far-left, and “Never Trump” fronts.
To cover their “Russian Collusion” bet, they next scooped up gobs and gobs of freshly created mud and threw that at the walls in ever increasing fanatical fits of desperation. Months and now years later, nothing has stuck.
What to do?
Even though former President Trump has been out of office for almost two years, the Democrats, the Deep State, the liberal media, and the entrenched Republican elites still fear him. More than fear him, they fear the influence he still strongly maintains with tens of millions of American voters.
Hence, the partisan, despicable and truly disreputable FBI raid on former President Trump’s private residence in Florida.
Look, former President Trump is not perfect. If I had his ear in the White House, I would have asked him to temper some of the school-yard rhetoric. A President can easily take the public high road, while completely neutralizing – or even crushing — the opposition privately behind the scenes. The fact is, by and large, then President Trump had exceptional policies which were dramatically reshaping our nation into a better and more secure version of itself.
But, for those willing to be honest with themselves, it was never about President Trump’s colorful rhetoric nor his policies. It was always because he was beyond the control of the DC Club and Cabal. Period.
Ironically – and quite relevantly – current President Joe Biden has been a charter member of that DC club for decades. One of his many nicknames being: “Go along, Joe.”
The question for many being: “How much did he ‘Go Along’ with the schemes of his son, Hunter Biden?”
The biggest threat to the Biden machine is not from Republicans or conservatives, but from the entrenched Democratic-elites and their servants in the media. At some point, the Democratic “leadership,” the liberal and Big-Tech special interests, Woke CEOs, members of the liberal “Deep State,” and certain mainstream media executives may decide for the good of them all, the “Biden Clan” has to be thrown overboard.
Should that come to pass – and it is more likely with each passing day – then a number of the alleged “Biden corruption” crumbs which have been repeatedly swept under multiple DC rugs, will magically start to creep back out onto the open floor for all to see.
“Crumbs” leading back to the Hunter Biden laptop as well as his business deals and contacts in Ukraine and The People’s Republic of China.
If I were a betting man, I would say they will never get former President Trump on any of the invented charges they have repeatedly orchestrated.
That said, I would not want to be part of the greater Biden family if the Democratic Cabal decides that all of them are suddenly and permanently, much more trouble than they are worth.
Should that come to pass, expect several very controversial “Presidential Pardons” to be announced at the end of the Biden administration in the wake of that Liberal-entrenched-elite “Save our own corrupt backsides” desperation move.

““Crumbs” leading back to the Hunter Biden laptop as well as his business deals and contacts in Ukraine and The People’s Republic of China.”
People support Trump because he’s NOT a politician he’s a businessman. Businessmen don’t start wars politicians start wars. The military industrial complex might profit from wars but politicians start them.
How many people are blind to the biden link to Ukraine and the FACT that Trump ended wars and under Biden a war in Ukraine started?
The probability of this being connected to Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine is at least 80%
J.J. Sefton says
Considering the jury pool, the judges and prosecutors in and around DC, and the Democrat meme/image that must be protected at all times, there is no way a Biden goes to jail let alone even hit with an indictment.
Also, any trial would ultimately reveal the actual criminality that Trump and all of us have been screaming about for years – something the Dems and their house organ propagandists have repeatedly declared “Disinformation” and “conspiracy theories.”
They’ll get rid of him the old fashioned way, like Seth Rich, Ron Brown and Vince Foster. The state funeral will be lit. Somewhere in the great beyond Sergei Kirov is nodding in agreement.
Jeff Bargholz says
Why murder a retard with stage 5 Alzheimer’s who’s never been in charge? The Dirtbagocrat party will just back somebody else to be their candidate in 2024 and make sure Alzheimer Joe can’t run. If they wanted him gone they would’ve already tried to remove him. Those scum don’t care how bad his administration has f’ed up the world and they think they can avoid culpability. Hell, they’re already churning out fraudulent D-Bag ballots and removing Republican ones.
His handlers never want to lose him, though. They’re misruling the country through their meat puppet and if he were removed from office, they’d be shit canned with him. They make Obama seem moderate and competent and desperately want two more years of sabotaging the country.
David Levine says
Durham must wait until Trump is President once again. Then, as long as Biden is no longer there to give pardons and the Statute of Limitations has not run its course, – the trial should proceed in Federal Court outside of DC. Much valuable evidence was revealed in the 2 trials (Sussman etc) which ended in not-guilty verdicts that can be used to nail the corrupt higher level frauds, cheats and liars, including Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Struck
Anyone who thinks the DoJ would bring ANY charges against a notable democrat is delusional
David Ray says
Consider that non of the possible charges involve the substantive heavy weight that’d involve the “big guy”.
Normally I’d think his handlers would be dangling the prosecution of the sleaze bag son over Sleepy to remind him of who really runs things.
But in this case, as Sleazy Joe would forget the affair in 10 minutes, I’m thinking it’s a sop to say “See! We’re fair and equal! See how we jailed Hunter (for a few months)?”
Steve Chavez says
“THE FBI, DOJ, AND MSM look at Trump under an ELECTRON MICROSCOPE while they look at the Clinton’s, Biden’s, and Democrats with a BACKWARDS HUBBLE TELESCOPE!” SC
THOUSANDS are looking for just one bad microscopic cell, out of 88 billion, so they can blow it out of proportion.
If they spent five minutes looking at The Big Guy alone, they would find the real crimes, and even Treason. Another two minutes, and they’d find Hillary’s where she was selling out our country for kickbacks to her Foundation. Three seconds on Obama and you’ll find his creating the conditions for the downfall of the United States, “BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER!”
THEY ARE ALL FOLLOWING “THE SCHULTZ PLAN.” “I see nothing! I hear nothing! I say nothing! I KNOW NOTHING!”
David Ray says
I’m afraid there’s bad news . . .
The Clinton Holyland Foundation is on severe life-support after the bitch lost the election. As a result, foreign bribes pouring into the scam foundation dried up immediately, and the Clinton’s had to let go most of the 450 toadies employed there. (No one worked there.)
The Clinton’s needed that money! They were entitled to that money!
So please; go to the website, and give generously.
(Fake dossiers manufactured on one’s political opponents cost big bucks, and Hillary might run again.)
“It was always because he was beyond the control of the DC Club and Cabal. Period.”
This is exactly right, Douglas, and that is why I absolutely love him after not voting for him in the 2016 primary.
David Ray says
Same here. I backed Ted Cruz in the primary.
At first I wanted nothing to do with Trump, but the more I saw, the more I began to like.
(And seriously; I’d have voted for anyone out of the phone book, before I’d have voted for the bitch Hillary)
Cruz in the primary as well, and by the time the GE rolled around I was voting for Trump, not just against hillary. I hadn’t seen dem/msm fear and loathing like that since Reagan, though they pretty much go after whoever is the leader of the GOP.
David Ray says
We’re on the exact same page.
How FLIMSY can that “ham sandwich” be if a DC Jury won’t indict PRESIDENT TRUMP? How ABSURD are the charges that keep getting rejected by a bunch of 98% DEMOcrats?? Must be something really “silly”!!
Now contrast that to the ROCK HARD EVIDENCE provided by the First Crackhead – should be like his dad – a NO BRAINER!! If I had to bet on either an indictment and trial vs an “overdose”, I think I’d go with the latter! AND if any of you out there are a “DEAD” wringer for Hunter!!!!
Kynarion Hellenis says
“A President can easily take the public high road, while completely neutralizing – or even crushing — the opposition privately behind the scenes.”
The “public high road” is what the weak republicrat always does. Language is powerful. Tone matters. This is war and it must be fought without restraint, and most especially without the restraint the enemy chooses for you. Why must our candidates must be perfect when theirs are criminal? What is “presidential”? Why restrain speech using their rules of decorum from which they exempt themselves? I am sick of polite conservative politicians who cannot go for the jugular.
Why should we veto our own candidates for their silly reasons having nothing to do with substance? Their candidates are often highly immoral and even criminal — easy targets! Politics is a blood sport. There might be a William Buckley out there that can remain cooly aloof while using blistering rhetoric, but that is Buckley. Let Trump be Trump. He was made for such a time as this.
Exactly right. What man–businessman, politician, husband, or father–would calmly, “moderately,” and meekly respond to being called “Hitler,” his lovely, gracious wife a “prostitute,” his 12-old son “an autistic retard,” and then, in addition to all of that, slandered as a “dictator,” a “Fascist,” a “traitor” and “an agent of Vladimir Putin”–???
Any man who DIDN’T punch back, hard, in the face of slanders like that against himself and his family isn’t much of a MAN at all, in my book.
Trump’s hard-hitting style energizes me, and I cheer for him every time he does it. And there’s nothing “unpresidential” about it at all!
Jeff Bargholz says
You’re right. The “high road” only works for liars like the Bidens, Pelosis and Clintons. (I hate when emotional metaphors are used by the news media and politicians place of real words that are more descriptive.) It never works for honest people, especially Republicans.
And yes, what is a Dirtbagocrat’s idea of presidential? A serial liar and poseur, of course. A bad actor. Many conservatives believe that same stupid crap, unfortunately. Give me an honest man who humiliates his political enemies for the American people like Trump does every day.
Dave Alexander says
Can a president pardon his own son on the way out the door? Asking for a friend.
Jeff Bargholz says
Ha. Yes, although new charges can be brought against Crack Hunter.
Spurwing Plover says
Biden, Obama and both the Clintons belong in prison doing life for Treason

Betsie Saltzberg says
Amen, brother! Let Trump be Trump!
Mad Celt says
Here’s the deal. You guys give up Schumer, Pelosi, Hunter and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and we’ll give up Trump and Cruz.
No, we won’t give up Trump and Cruz, we’ll just promise to, and then renege on the “promise,” as the Dems do every time gullible Republicans cave in to their demands in exchange for some “concessions” from them.
The 1986 “Immigration Reform Bill” that they deceived Reagan to sign in exchange for “but no more illegals than we have now,” is one of the most disgusting examples of their treachery (Reagan himself later recognized it as “the worst mistake of my entire Presidency”).
We need to wise up use their own cynical, mendacious strategy against them, for a change.
As long as we don’t sink to their level. We need to be aware of the danger there.
Justin Swingle says
BIDEN’S GIG OF CORRUPTION DIDN’T COMMENCE WHEN HE FINALLY MADE IT TO THE PRESIDENCY. IT STARTED WHEN HIS POLITICAL CAREER COMMENCED.
THE FACT THAT BIDEN AND THE LIKES ARE NEVER PROSECUTED SPEAKS VOLUMNS ON OUR GOV’S STAGGERING CORRUPTION.
MOST POLITICIANS ARE RAKING IN THE BRIBES, INFLUENCE PEDDLING, SIPHONING BRIBES THROUGH FAMILY MEMBERS AND INSIDE TRADING.
Bidens of all sorts are under federal investigation for tax evasion, money-laundering, and unregistered agent foreign ties, as this Politico report citing Hunter notes.
You’re absolutely correct. But you needn’t use all caps to get your point across.
Has anyone ever known a President who has been so destructive to the American people? I think not. Both Obama and Biden have been fundamentally transforming America.
One can only hope
Robert of Prague says
Mega-kudos for a well thought-out & written piece. Having taught myself E in Bern, CH in 1975, my graduate class was reading W.F. Buckley’s big-word-musings in NR, dictionary at hand. That was 1982 while living on the Upper W Side.
Your paragraph length sentence “As the entrenched-elites in it for the power, the money, or petrified that they would soon be exposed as the charlatans they are could not have that, the “Russian Collusion” hoax was created in the darkest, most putrid shadows of the DC sewers and rolled out on multiple liberal, far-left, and “Never Trump” fronts” is nicely chiseled. It reminds me of my fave German writer, Herman Hesse. Some of his great sentences are half a page long in German.
However, concur w/ the commenters re: Trump’s ‘mean tweets.’ Donald is a builder from NYC; he talks & acts like one & gets the job done. Being an engineering geologist (part of the team that built the 10 miles long Gotthard tunnel under the Alps) I talk & act just like him. And, nobody touches women in my family! OTOH, Donald could use more of Prez Reagan wit & humor. My dad, friends & I were hated for mocking the commies in Prague & at the Kremlin. Getting caught meant Gulag, though. We eat the woke L-‘progs’ for breakfast! Rather dead than Red!
