…..through the Abracadabra of the Electoral College and the mistake of a DOJ operative in James Comey.
James Comey was the victim of a set-up by Donald Trump who found a way to micromanage Comey to denounce and irredeemably damage Hillary Clinton his opponent in the 2016 Election.
Even though Hillary Clinton had still managed to beat the outlaw character by close to 3 million votes in the popular vote, the poor woman had deferred to the Rule of Law and the Constitution by not challenging the result or sending out a mob to prevent a peaceful transfer of power to a hoodlum and the most unlikely person to be elected President of the so-called best Experiment in Human History, the Bastion of Democracy and the Leader of the Free World.
The stalemate and the impasse and the close to constitutional crisis and polarization America is facing today would have occurred in 2016 because if Donald Trump had won the popular vote by just a thousand vote talk less of 3 million, he would not have allowed Hillary Clinton to be sworn in just like Al Gore had done in his epic battle with George Bush Junior.
Donald Trump in his delusion and convoluted mind had told the whole nation he is the only one who could fix America and he could never imagine he could ever lose any election. He has to win by hook or crook and if he does not win, he has to declare he won like Adolf Hitler before him.
If Attorney General Merrick Garland does not deliver on his promise to hold whoever commits crime accountable at all levels without fear or favor, he would be guilty of the same mistake James Comey had committed when he breached DOJ protocols to denounce, brutalize and irredeemably damage Hillary Clinton eleven days to an election Hillary was clearly on her way to win as confirmed by opinion polls all over the country.
“I will believe it when I see it” is a popular English adage but today Donald Trump and his Republican supporters have turned the English adage upside down. They are pushing back on the truth and asking us not to believe what we have seen and witnessed with our own eyes in real time that the Mob was sent by Donald Trump to kill and maim and to stop a peaceful transfer of power to the man who won by close to 8 million votes in the popular vote and by 306 to 232 in the Electoral College.
When the History of this country is written, it shall be established beyond all shades of doubt that Donald Trump was not just a spoiler and a hoodlum but the Tom McVeigh of our time or the “Adolf Hitler on steroid” who would prefer to ruin the edifice if he is not allowed to rule it as correctly observed by President Joe Biden in the best speech of his Presidency hitherto.
If anybody other than Donald Trump were to be President who had been twice- impeached before committing all of the atrocities we have documented, the Republicans would have been singing a different tune like they are singing today.
Could the Republicans have tolerated for one month the kinds of criminal violations cited against Donald Trump if his name were Barrack Obama?
Your guess is as good as mine. Joe Biden must realize that if the roles were reversed and if Donald Trump were to be President again, he would not hesitate to put Joe Biden in jail even without trial.
He is going to silence the voice of reason and any voice of dissent by locking up the Opposition and throwing away the key.
Joe Biden is not a heartless politician and dictator like Donald Trump who politicizes everything and lacks the moral scruples to lead a country governed by the Rule of Law. He likes to bury the truth and not face up to it. I agree with Joe Biden that “great nations don’t bury the truth, they face up to it, take corrective action and move on.
President Biden has hoped that the lunacy on the part of Donald Trump and his fanatic supporters would have faded away but sadly for America, and arguably for the rest of Humanity who relies on America for leadership, it has not.
Donald Trump as a despicable narcissist who only believes in himself and not in America. We must deounce him and hold him accountable. He is not going to stop until that happens. He has got to pay a price for leading the insurrection and for openly trying to rig the 2020 Election.
Donald Trump cannot love his country only when he wins. In a Democracy, you win some or lose some. The Republicans were in power before but today it is the turn of the Democrats.
For Donald Trump and the Republicans to now want to permanently keep power in their hands forever by making it harder for the Blacks, the Browns, the Red Indians and other minorities to vote in America is clearly wrong and wicked.
They are even more wrong to support state and local laws that refuse to count the votes of the minorities if they manage to vote at all. Who in his right senses can accept that? The John Lewis Voters Legislation must pass and be signed into Law. Period.
The DOJ cannot and must not continue to mislead the country. I just cannot help but feel sorry for America and how close she was to losing Democracy as we reflect on the fact that January 6 was so much more than just an attack on the very Sanctuary and Pinnacle of Democracy and the Beacon of Hope to the whole Universe.
Insurrection and a coup without commensurate punishment and consequences can become a training exercise for future rebellion and coups once said Cornel-trained lawyer Ari Melber of MSNBC.
I cannot agree more. That should be food for thought for Merrick Garland.
I rest my case.
