So. Here we are on the good side of history as the United States of America, God’s greatest gift to the human race, has just escaped a media/leftist coup. Ever since Mr. Trump defied all of the pundits and the pollsters and won the election in November of 2016, the media and the leftists have been planning and executing a leftist/media coup against the Constitution.
The bare bones of the coup were apparent almost immediately. The media swore up and down that there had been "collusion" between the Trump campaigns and Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton and fail to put a Clinton on the throne of America. Now, please bear in mind, that there never was any evidence of such collusion. Plus, no one knew what it would look like if it had existed. Would it be mountains of newsprint saying how great Trump was, coming from pro-Russian media here? No such things ever were seen.
Could it have been some major peace move in Ukraine by Russia contingent upon Trump winning? We never saw any sign of that either. Could it have been an immense contribution from the Russian gold hoard to the Trump campaign? No hint of that either.
So, then what was it?
Those of us raised to be skeptical of the media/leftist axis since the successful media coup against Richard Nixon in Watergate saw right through the whole thing. Watergate was media hysteria over basically nothing. So was the Trump/Russia collusion, as we saw it and heard it. The whole thing was cooked up by a leftist cabal within the deep state and the media followed and then led like the baying hounds they are.
There just never was any evidence of collusion and anyway, collusion is not a crime.
Now, said the anti-Trump mob, never mind that there was no evidence of collusion. There were all of those indictments and convictions for lying to the FBI and surely that was just the prelude to an indictment of President Trump. But that proved nothing either. Take a few thousand people. Ask them what they had for breakfast on a certain day, and you will surely get some answers that are false. That’s just trolling.
The FBI stirred the pot and some unwholesome items came to the top. That’s standard in any immense investigation. That’s why we supposedly have only the most restrained, most judicious people heading up these investigations.
But something had changed. In the forty years since Watergate, the prosecutors had come to see themselves as investigators, judges, and juries all at once.
