James Comey has been about as open as its possible for him to be, about his intentions over emailgate. He was trying to manipulate the elections to ensure that Hilary Clinton would be boxed in by Republican majorities in House and Senate. It just never occurred to him that Trump could actually win. When Trump did win, many in the deep state set about bringing him down with the false Russian claims. More recently we've had the Jan 6th coup nonsense. Jan 6th was not a coup. it was not an insurrection. It wasn't even a riot. it was just an aggressive demonstration. No doubt there were people in the demonstration who would like it to have turned into an insurrection, but the same goes for a million and one leftie demonstrations that have taken place in the US and in Europe.
Donald Trump is a performance artist very much in the mold of Andy Kaufman. Now perhaps Trump really started to believe in his theater. Maybe he really started to believe he was going to overturn the 2020 election result. But this was never going to happen. It wasn't supported by Pence, by the Republican Party leadership, by the Army or by the Police. It wasn't even supported by his own family members.
This latest raid is just the latest trawl to find some charge, any charge to frame Trump with. Is it good that Trump is the de-facto leader of one the US's two major parties? Certainly not. Of course its shameful that this is what the Republican party has produced. In the same way its shameful that the Democrats have given us Joe Biden. But I stand by my assertion that we know noting of substance now about Trump that we didn't know when he came down the escalator and announced he was standing for the Republican nomination.
Separately elected executive Presidencies are awful, particularly in the US's divided, divisive violent multi racial, multi cultural context. But if you choose to keep this system its no good whining about the inevitable bad results.
Cultural Marxism judgement of imagined guilty groups, "Whites", etc by completely unrealistic, absolute unchanging standards, while denying, minimising, excusing and relativising the "crimes" of imagined innocent oppressed groups.
