Everything that transpired resembled the scenes of many Hollywood films. Except it wasn’t fiction.
On Tuesday morning local time, dozens of FBI agents stormed Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. The search lasted several hours. The agents probably wanted to obtain documents, including those labeled “top secret”, which were allegedly kept by the former president. The action of the special forces provoked a quick reaction from Trump, calling it a “raid” and a “siege.” In a statement, the former president said that “it is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024. These are dark times for America”, he stated, and that “nothing like this has ever happened to any former president of the United States”.
The action of the secret services was quickly commented on by bloggers, journalists, and politicians. Many of them believed that this kind of operation made the USA a Third World country and resembled a settlement in the banana republic. Are these opinions exaggerated? I do not think so. Everything indicates that the action of the secret services has a political goal. Democrats struck Trump in the hope that the search, even if it did not lead to evidence of guilt, would obtain documents that could be used in a defamation campaign. Politically, the operation is the responsibility of democratic leaders, led by the current president, Joe Biden.
In fact, no other American president had ever been treated in this way before. It is all the more shocking as Trump is not only the former head of state, but has already announced his campaign start and battle for re-election in 2024. In other words, the secret service is targeting a potential president and a Republican candidate in the next election. To put it simply: the services attacked the opposition leader. True, such operations are (were?) Typical of banana republics, not of a democracy. Especially since – as all available polls show – Trump has a good chance of not only being nominated as a Republican but of success as well. Two days before the FBI intervened at a major conservative convention in Dallas, Texas, Trump announced an overwhelming victory. In the convention, which was also attended by, inter alia, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, Trump said that coming months will determine the course of American civilization and its survival. “America is on the brink of an abyss and only we can stop it”. In such a situation, it is difficult not to link the FBI actions with these announcements.
The more that the allegations themselves sound quite peculiar. According to investigators, the former US president was supposed to have prepared a plot. Objective? Preventing Joe Biden from seizing power after the 2020 elections. Likewise, he is alleged to have incited his supporters to invade the Capitol on January 6th, 2021. It was allegedly an act of terrorism. Another move by the Democratic-controlled prosecutor’s office will be to try to file criminal charges against Trump. The final decision rests with the head of the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland, a close associate of Biden. Democrats have been trying to get rid of Trump since winning the 2016 election. They have failed to impeach him three times. Similarly, a large-scale investigation aimed at proving that he was Putin’s agent had failed.
Therefore, a possible decision to prosecute may be a nail in the coffin for the Democrats. If they don’t have strong evidence that Trump was plotting something like a coup d’état this time around – and it seems that the allegations are simply a trick – the accusation will be widely regarded as another act of persecution. Even those who have doubts will then vote for Trump. One – to show solidarity with the victim, two – for fear of the growing power of the secret service and the Deep State.
The current US presidential election will therefore resemble a real war. Even by straining the rhetoric characteristic of political campaigns, where everything is exaggerated and dramatized, there will be a clash between two completely different Americas. On the one hand, there will be supporters of globalism, while supporters of the former conservative America will support Trump. It will be a war of progressive globalists and defenders of the traditional order. The war of genderists, climatists, and sanitaryists against the supporters of freedom. The war between the oligarchs and the democrats (it is not about the party with that name). The war between Big Tech and Big Media against the federation of representatives of the people.
Steven W. Mosher, one of the commentators on the influential Christian website lifesitenews.com, said that following the FBI attack, America faced a choice between “constitutionalism or de facto communism”. Strong words. However, it is difficult to disagree with them.
