The lingering malady of Trump Derangement Syndrome - spiked
There’s a whiff of the banana republic to the reports that Donald Trump will be arrested this week over the Stormy Daniels affair. Trump said on Truth Social that he expects to have his collar felt by the cops tomorrow. It would be related to the 2016 investigation of the hush money Trump gave to porn star Daniels after he caught wind of the fact that she was trying to hawk the story of their extramarital affair. Trump gave her $130,000, which is perfectly legal, but he registered the hush cash as ‘legal fees’, which is not legal – that’s the falsification of business records, prosecutors say, which is a misdemeanour in New York. NYC district attorney Alvin Bragg set up a grand jury on this rather minor matter, and it’s possible an indictment will be announced this week.
You don’t have to be a Team Trump, ‘January 6’ hothead to know that such an indictment would be a brazenly political act, motivated more by coastal-elite animus towards the Bad Orange Man than by concern about a little white lie in Trump’s business accounts. Bragg is a radical Democrat. His loathing of Trump is well known. He’s also notoriously soft on crime, to the fury of many New Yorkers. As the National Review put it, ‘crime is rampant in New York’, in part because ‘Bragg’s default position is leniency and often non-prosecution when it comes to hardened criminals’. The idea that he’s now having sleepless nights over a fib told by Trump seven years ago is preposterous. No, this is ‘bare-naked politics’, in NR’s words.
Shocking but not surprising, as we seem to be saying more often lately. We need to figure out a way to get a higher class of professional in the DA's offices around the country. One should not be able to waltz in and buy the offices like Soros has done. This is the result, along with much of the decay of our cities, and all because one billionaire is a crazy socialist. It really does not have to be this way.
An astute crazy socialist. He spotted this weakness in your system and exploited it.
If you don't want to be ruled by plutocrats you've got to find ways of stopping them buying political posts. Or find ways of deterring them from such behaviour. Maybe someone should study the techniques of that Epstein fellow, or the methods of the FBI, or other successful crooks.
