I don’t know why President Trump failed to publicly uphold the law and the Constitution when he was confronted with massive election fraud. Given all of the various anomalies we’ve witnessed since January, I don’t even know who is actually calling the shots in the United States. But while I still assert that Donald Trump was the greatest US president since Andrew Jackson, what I do know is that he also doesn’t merit any sympathy whatsoever from his supporters for his current post-presidential persecutions.
New York’s attorney general is now investigating the Trump Organization for criminal offenses, it emerged on Tuesday night.
The office, led by Letitia James, had been investigating the company for civil tax offenses since early 2019. The investigation has now escalated.
‘We have informed the Trump Organization that our investigation into the Organization is no longer purely civil in nature,’ said Fabien Levy, a spokesman for the office.
‘We are now actively investigating the Trump Organization in a criminal capacity, along with the Manhattan DA.’
First, Trump betrayed – yes, betrayed – his supporters when he completely failed to address, much less crack down upon, the social media companies who were systematically attacking them. As someone who was “suspended” from Twitter six years ago, I’m completely unmoved by conservatives belatedly crying about their own recent suspensions and deplatformings. This could have, and should have, been dealt with by President Trump back in 2016, and his failure to do so was a massive strategic mistake that was obvious at the time.
If you won’t fight for your followers, don’t expect them to fight for you.
Second, it was always obvious to everyone that the witch-hunting that started before President Trump even took office was going to continue the moment that he left office. And no matter what agreements were agreed, only a complete idiot would have placed any confidence in the various parties that make up the Deep State all keeping them.
As I repeatedly pointed out during his presidency, President Trump’s fundamental weakness is that he is a negotiator, not a fighter. Which means, at the end of the day, he’s always going to cave and take the best deal that he thinks he can get. While we don’t know that’s what happened after the events of November 3, 2020, it wouldn’t be even remotely surprising to eventually learn that Trump took the best deal he thought he could get at the time in lieu of crossing the Rubicon.
THE ART OF THE SUCKER, March 2017:
An ambitious immigration deal with Congress. That sounds familiar, how did that work out in 1986? It’s rather remarkable that an experienced negotiator like Donald Trump doesn’t seem to fully grasp the way in which everything else he does will be rendered entirely moot by giving in on immigration. This would appear to be a crucial nexus, and if handled incorrectly, has the potential to serve as his own “No New Taxes” moment, which you will recall sank a George Bush who had previously been riding very high in the polls and was widely expected to win reelection.
If Trump doesn’t build the wall and maintain a hard line on immigration, he will not win the 2020 election, as he will lose the base that has remained loyal to him throughout. It’s literally the one thing he cannot afford to do, which is why he should immediately fire any adviser, from his daughter on down, who is advising him to throw away his core support in pursuit of a mirage and approval from the Left that will never come.
Never abandon your base. Never abandon your core. If you do not understand this, you are absolutely guaranteed failure.
This really isn’t that hard. 1) Build the Wall. 2) They have to go back.
SO STOP NEGOTIATING, CHAMP, October 2019:
President Trump needs to stop listening to his “aides”. It was incredibly stupid. But it’s ultimately Trump’s fault for caving constantly instead of following through on his threats. This is the problem with a negotiator. They never grasp that sometimes the best deal is no deal.
Giving up a major campaign promise “because Mexico won’t cooperate” is entirely retarded. The US has the largest military in the world. Mexico doesn’t need to cooperate; there are many other ways to keep invaders out than relying on the Mexicans to do it.
