Whatever your idea of America was when life was “normal,” the FBI raid on former President Trump’s home in Palm Beach, Florida proves that “normal” isn’t returning any time soon,
because “normal” involves too much risk that Democrats and their Deep State allies will lose their power.
As Daniel Greenfield explained in an article for FrontpageMag.com, the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate wasn’t about documents allegedly taken improperly from the White House.
Wrote Mr. Greenfield:
Back in May, the paper [The New York Times] revealed that a federal grand jury investigation had been convened over boxes of “government documents, mementos, gifts and letters” taken to Mar-a-Lago. There was no federal investigation when the Clintons left the White House with $190,000 worth of “china, flatware, rugs, televisions, sofas and other gifts”. The FBI didn’t come knocking at Chappaqua.
This isn’t about the documents. Just as Russiagate was not about the Russians. It’s not about the 15 boxes of documents, letters and assorted presidential records and gifts that were hurriedly packed up and sent off to Mar-a-Lago, most of which were later returned when the National Archives requested them, this is about the 2024 presidential election.
The Democrats have given up winning the 2024 presidential campaign at the polls and intend to win it at the hands of their prosecutors and judges, explained Mr. Greenfield.
The allegations and investigations will continue to shift as they have since Day 1. Whether it’s the Russians, the Ukrainians, Jan 6, and now classified document handling procedures, and whatever they come up with tomorrow, Biden’s DOJ intends to win by indicting his opponents.
Instead of winning over the public, they want to prosecute their way to victory, Greenfield concluded.
Daniel Greenfield is right, but the Democrats’ plan to prosecute their way to public office and power isn’t limited to DC, Biden, Garland and the Deep State FBI.
In Michigan the Democrat Attorney General has opened investigations into Republican candidates for Governor, and against her own opponent for Attorney General.
According to multiple media reports, Michigan Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel announced in a press release on Aug. 8 that her department had petitioned the Michigan Prosecuting Attorneys Coordinating Council, a state agency that provides legal research to the state's prosecuting attorneys and coordinates their activities, to assign a special prosecutor to an ongoing investigation into efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Nessel's petition, based on evidence obtained during an investigation by the office of Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, says that the Michigan Department of Attorney General and the Michigan State Police are investigating "a conspiracy to unlawfully obtain access to voting machines used in the 2020 elections." Named in the petition are a Republican candidate for Michigan attorney general, Kalamazoo lawyer Matt DePerno, and eight other people.
And this is after Michigan’s Democrat-controlled elections bureau charged that five Republican candidates for governor, including the two early leading contenders, failed to file enough valid nominating signatures and should not qualify for the August primary.
This would not be such a big deal, if Michigan Democrats did not have a record of submitting forged or fraudulent petition signatures and then going to court to get on the ballot in flagrant violation of the law.
In 2014 the late Representative John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, then one of the most senior members of Congress, who was a founder of the Congressional Black Caucus and the then-ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, failed to collect the required 1,000 valid signatures.
Conyers’ candidacy was thrown into doubt when it was discovered that of the more than 1,000 signatures his campaign had collected, hundreds of the names belonged to people who were not residents of his district or were not registered to vote. In the end, Mr. Conyers was left with only 592 valid signatures.
At the time The New York Times reported Judge Matthew F. Leitman of Federal District Court said that the “failure to comply with the registration statute was the result of good-faith mistakes.”
“They believed they were in compliance with the statute,” the judge wrote.
Judge Leitman added that the First Amendment rights of Mr. Conyers and the signature collectors working for his campaign were “severely burdened” under the current law.
However, unlike 2022 Republican candidates for Governor, such as former Detroit police chief James Craig and businessman Perry Johnson, Conyers was able to use a friendly Democrat-appointed federal judge to get back on the ballot.
Republicans who foolishly assume that the 2022 midterm election will be “normal” are about to get a rude awakening, because nothing in America is “normal” anymore.
