"Treason doth never prosper. What’s the reason? Why, if treason doth prosper. None dare call it treason."
--Sir John Harrington (1561-1612)
I don’t care what the Mueller Report says.
Conservatives should not be applauding the Mueller Report for finding no collusion with Russia by President Trump during his election campaign or after.
The Mueller investigation itself was never legitimate.
It was part of a conspiracy by the Obama administration, the Democratic Party, and their minions in the FBI and Justice Department against Mr. Trump, his allies, voters, and the Constitution.
Any intelligent person, not wholly blinded by fanatical anti-Trump partisanship, should have understood all along that the Mueller investigation, a stacked deck, staffed with highly partisan activist Democratic lawyers, was biased and bogus.
Any intelligent person, not rendered insane by anti-Trump hatred, should have understood all along that vociferous accusations by Democrats and the liberal mainstream media that President Trump colluded with Russia to win election — that President Trump is a traitor — was and is utter nonsense.
Indeed, these false accusations against President Trump, that seek to delegitimize his administration and cancel the ballots cast by Trump voters, is the real act of treason.
I was among the first to warn that the false narrative about collusion with Russia and the bogus Mueller investigation are an attempted coup d’etat. For example, writing in "'Seven Days In May' — For Real" (Newsmax, May 25, 2018): "The self-righteous left has for decades been warning that conservatives are a Right-wing threat to our constitutional republic and freedom."
"Now the Obama administration’s FBI, CIA, and Department of Justice has been caught red-handed penetrating and trying to sabotage the rival Republican Party’s presidential campaign in a so-called counter-intelligence operation code-named CROSSFIRE-HURRICANE."
"CROSSFIRE-HURRICANE is an obviously illegal and unconstitutional weaponization of the powers of the intelligence community and federal law enforcement for partisan political purposes. Their objective was to ensure defeat of Donald Trump and election of Hillary Clinton as President of the United States by framing Trump with false allegations of collusion with Russia."
Moreover: "The aftermath of CROSSFIRE-HURRICANE is the Mueller investigation and vociferous, omnipresent campaign by the liberal mainstream media to delegitimize President Trump’s election with the now proven lie that he is Russia’s Manchurian Candidate."
"Astonishingly, the former Director of National Intelligence, General James Clapper, now a CNN commentator, unashamedly defends as a 'good thing' the weaponization of the intelligence community against political rivals. Clapper hides behind the transparent fiction CROSSFIRE-HURRICANE and the Mueller investigation protect America’s political system from Russian interference."
"Astonishingly, the liberal mainstream media have closed ranks behind General Clapper to support what amounts to an ongoing coup attempt against President Trump."
The Democratic Party is no longer the party of Presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, or even Bill Clinton.
The Democraic Party has become a nascent totalitarian force dedicated to gaining and holding political power by any means necessary.
Democratic identity politics that seek, and are succeeding, in dividing the nation by race, class, religion, and sexual orientation are destroying the identity of what it means to be an American.
Their politics of hatred, entitlement, and socialism are antithetical to concepts of citizenship, equality before the law, and other core principles foundational to a free society and our constitutional republic.
Their weaponization of the FBI and Justice Department and Mueller investigation to support what is still an ongoing attempted coup d’etat against President Trump must be punished.
President Trump is to be faulted for not fighting back.
He has listened for too long to advisors who mistakenly believe passivity by the Trump administration will quell the ongoing cold civil war being waged by Democrats.
President Trump must fight fire with fire.
Attorney General William Barr should aggressively investigate, indict, and imprison leaders of the attempted coup d’etat who served and are serving in the FBI, DOJ, Intelligence Community, and Democratic Party.
President Trump must honor his campaign promise to aggressively investigate Hillary Clinton’s collusion with Russia during the elections, her reckless disclosure of classified documents by e-mails when secretary of state, and influence peddling through the Clinton Foundation.
Seeking justice against the coup plotters is not an act of vengeance, but necessary to defend our constitutional republic. The Democratic Party must be taught that there is a difference between mere "dirty politics" and treason.
Justice against the coup plotters is also necessary for reasons of national security.
Moscow, Beijing, Pyongyang, and Tehran are watching. There is nothing more dangerous than perceived weakness in America’s commander in chief in this age of weapons of mass destruction.
