Editorial: One big giant scam

Perhaps the greatest political scam ever perpetrated in U.S. history, schemers of the Democrat Party have been officially exposed for their disinformation and harassment of Donald J. Trump.

Something, a lot of us have suspected for many years.

On May 15, 2023, the release of the 300-page Special Council John Durham Report – a four-year study revealing Democrat planning and participation into various “get Trump” plots – has documented tricks, associates, and ring leaders of the ruses.

Sadly, many already knew who the principal players of this charade were.

Durham remarked it was an investigation that wasn’t necessary.  Facts and evidence had already been divulged from previous revelations of primary culprits.

Chief among them, Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and former CIA Director John Brennan.  Numerous lesser characters and bureaucrats were also mentioned.

During the process, semi-conscious media, layered with eager reporters and editors, were awarded literary honors for their 24/7 coverage of this nonsense.  Often bragging their investigating and reporting was responsible for informing the public of Trump’s horrendous ways.

All the while, purposely designed fabrications, deceptions, and half-truths were intended to continually smear Trump and his administration.  The mainstream media, it seems, has become a propaganda tool of the Left. 

However, the lengthy time it took to compile the Durham Report is a bit suspicious, as is the recommendation no one is prosecuted for their malicious conduct.

Why?  Simple, the “Swamp” protects its own.

Several innocent lives have been adversely impacted by these illegal actions.  Arrests, jail, and financial hardships were imposed upon folks — based upon uncorroborated intelligence and faulty evidence – who were not lawfully liable for the alleged accusations.

Likewise, Trump’s life in Washington has been a continuum of defending himself against one Democrat hit after another.  Still is – over two years after he left office.

Dems appear to be totally mesmerized by the fact Trump is running for president again in 2024.  Adding to the bewilderment, their confused brains can’t seem to handle the reality he is currently leading in several nationally recognized polls.

Including, those conducted by a few mainstream anti-Trump media organizations.

As a result, there’s concern the 2024 election will be a repeat of 2020’s questionable and abnormal voting routines, with results equally disputable. 

Presently, President Joe’s favorability rating is registering less than 40% and continues to spiral downward.  A large percentage of his own party would like to see someone else try for the job.

At least two candidates have already been announced.

It’s no secret Joe’s term in the Oval Office has been a frustrating fiasco.

From economic calamity to the southern border upheaval, to COVID-19 missteps, to Afghanistan military withdrawal blunders, to Hunter Biden’s documented nefarious escapades, virtually everything the Biden Administration has been involved in has resulted in a catastrophic debacle.

The Durham Report – though tardy in its release – has simply illustrated in print what has been imagined previously.  I’ve noted the Dems treachery and scheming against Trump several times in the past few years.

The “Impeach 45” monotonous chant of U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (CA-D), was a constant reminder of how paranoid the Democrats had become.  Delusional fantasies of a Hitler-like madman clouded reasoning, judgment, and common sense. 

Fortunately, their pranks weren’t well disguised for the simple reason they were not designed by overly intelligent conspirators.  Focused on one thing, and one thing only — Trump was an outsider who didn’t play by established rules.  

As a result, he had to be expunged.

For the last six or seven years, Trump has been run through the wringer by various Washington melodramas.  Consequently, it’s doubtful any of the identified actors in Durham’s Report will be indicted or legally tried.

Particularly, while Biden remains in office.  His DOJ will see to this.

Like any criminal organization, they will do what they have to do to shield their contrivances from exposure and prosecution. 

If it means fabricating and falsifying testimony and evidence to ensnare Trump and his supporters, so be it.  The fictitious “Russian collusion” caper, two impeachments, or the Jan. 6th “insurrection” prattle is evidence Dems will go to any lengths to foster an environment of a double standard of justice.

Including, baseless impeachments and FBI raids on Trump’s private residence.

Meanwhile, Joe, and his family members, have been exposed by several whistleblowers as being implicated in classified document removals and questionable international financial dealings, and tax evading chicaneries.

Yet, no reported FBI or IRS investigations into their behavior.  Only recently, has a Republican-controlled House of Representatives begun committee hearings on Biden’s unexplained accumulation of millions of dollars from outside sources.

Keep in mind, the Biden family didn’t invent, make, sell, or distribute any marketable products or services – except, themselves.  Joe has simply been a government servant for nearly his entire adult life.  Something not normally conducive to the accruing of huge sums of wealth.  

So, the logical questions arise – where did all the money come from, and for what purpose was it paid?   

As usual, the original crime isn’t the big story – it’s the lies, intrigues, stonewalling, and coverups that accompany it. 

As we’re learning, President Nixon and the Watergate scandal pale in comparison to Biden’s mischief in office.  Bill Clinton’s romps with a White House intern were simply satisfying biological urges, not compromising national security.  As were the Kennedy brother’s sexual flings in the early 1960s.  They were dismissed as being “Just the Kennedys doing what the Kennedys do.”  Sort of an expected family tradition. 

Joe’s situation is considerably different, more serious, and dangerous to the security and safety of the nation.

Years ago, the Federal Correctional Institution in Safford welcomed a Watergate participant or two.  I’m sure they would be equally receptive to a few of Joe’s friends and la Familia.
