OPINION – President Trump knows what is on Hunter’s infamous hard drive and from the sounds of it, there are some major bombshells yet to come. His speech at his rally in Georgia likely has Joey B and his boy sweating bullets.
If there is one thing that the many Democrats and Republicans agree on, it is that Trump has worked hard to keep his campaign promises. He got us out of the TPP, he renegotiated NAFTA, he has been pulling troops out of endless wars for corporate profit.
However, there are some things, major things he is yet to deliver on, although not for lack of trying. It appears that it took President Trump about 3 years to realize that he is a man on an island in Washington. The swamp is murkier and deeper than he could have ever imagined. Trump promised to ‘drain the swamp’ and tossed Sessions out on his ass after he failed to go after the DS, rather stepping aside to allow coup plotters to try and further undermine him.
Trump then appointed Attorney General Barr, who appointed Durham and Bash, all of which have proven to be horrific failures thus far. Hillary Clinton is still above the law and there is little hope that anything will be done to seriously investigate her foundation or email scandals.
The other big promise that we are waiting to be fulfilled is ‘the wall.’ While Trump can point to the fact that 321 miles of wall have been constructed during his Presidency, according to Wikipedia, that is no where near what was promised. It has not been for lack of trying, but rather the swamp, once again not wanting to piss off their corporate donors who demand cheap labor.
Anyway, back to draining the swamp and holding those who sold out country out for their own personal gain to be held to account. HRC seems to be getting away without so much as a slap on the wrist, but she is largely faded away into the ether. Joe Biden, however, remains a threat. If the allegations stemming from his son’s alleged emails are true, having Biden as President would be an unfathomable national security threat.
I understand that calling for imprisoning your opponent in an election, while president, can look like a banana republic endeavor. However, what does one do when evidence emerges that suggests that the former VP who is running for POTUS may be in bed with the biggest threat to America, and Earth for that matter, China?
Breitbart reported: ‘President Donald Trump told a rally crowd in Macon, Georgia, on Friday: “Lock up the Bidens.”
Trump was referring to reports that then-Vice President Joe Biden, his Democratic opponent, met with Chinese and Ukrainian business figures allegedly paying his son, Hunter Biden, to facilitate introductions to senior U.S. officials.
Trump appeared to be joking:
Trump: But they thought it was very unfair that Sleepy Joe who cannot answer a question… He really can’t answer a question. Well, Chris Wallace protected him with me. I talked about the Moscow three-and-a-half million payment. I talked about the billion dollars [from China]. Chris Wallace wouldn’t let that… He said, no, that’s not appropriate. Why? You mean the guy’s allowed to take three and a half a million bucks and we’re not allowed to talk to him about it? I’m telling you, that Biden family… And others, but that Biden family is corrupt. It’s a corrupt family.
Crowd: Lock them up!
Trump: And with me and my kids… Let me tell you, my kids… I’ll tell you something. [Laughs] Lock them up. You should lock them up. Lock up the Bidens. Lock up Hillary. Lock them up. Can you imagine if my kids did what this guy Hunter is doing?
The “lock her up” chant was among the more controversial features of Trump rallies in the 2016 presidential campaign, referring to claims that Democratic Party rival Hillary Clinton had broken the law by using an illicit private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.’
Either we live in a nation of laws or we don’t. As of now, I think the sad truth is that there is no justice for people like HRC and Joey B. This does not mean that Trump can not change this. He has to, the fate of the republic depends on it.
