“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” –Montesquieu
It has been clear enough since the Obama administration weaponized the DOJ and the FBI that there is no longer a single and equal system of justice in America.
There are two; one for progressive Democrats that essentially ignores the Constitution, and a harsh, Kafkaesque version for conservatives.
Remember when those Black Panthers stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia with baseball bats and Eric Holder refused to prosecute them for voter intimidation? Or when the Obama administration sold guns to the drug cartels in a pathetic effort to track them and ultimately blame American gun stores? One of those guns killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent. And when subpoenaed, Eric Holder refused to comply and was not held in contempt. That was just the beginning.
The left thought Trump’s 2015 presidential candidacy was a joke. As it gained steam, they strategized; Ah, how about we accuse him of colluding with Russia to get elected? That was Hillary’s bright idea – he stole the election with Russia’s help! The Democrat sheep all gleefully followed her and the FBI/DOJ lead. The media gleefully embraced the hoax. They published fiction and won Pulitzers. Now that the truth is out, if they had a smidgeon of moral sense, they would all return their Pulitizers, resign, or be fired.
Donald Trump was the best president to come along in decades for all the right reasons: Energy independence, low unemployment, low inflation; he was tough on China, he got NATO to pay more of their fair share of their own defense, secured the southern border and started no wars. He would have extricated us from Afghanistan peacefully. He was not a politician, he was a successful businessman and he ran the country like the business it is. His candidacy, once it became clear he could actually win, was a nightmare for the left. They did everything they could think of to sabotage the man’s campaign and presidency. In 2016, they employed every kind of election fraud in their black bag of tricks to defeat him.
Once elected, he was true to his word to “drain the swamp” and that was more than anathema to the left. It struck terror in their cold, power-mad hearts.

The shock of Trump’s election incited the deep state to redouble their efforts at criminalizing patriotism and our constitutional respect for law and order.
