My Felon Americans

Having a grim time - wish we weren't here!
And now it's on. Donald Trump, the only real threat to the Deep State, is facing 136 years in prison after having been convicted on all counts for allegedly committing a handful of misdemeanors that had already expired under the statute of limitations. The only testimony linking Trump to the misdemeanors came from a known and repeat perjurer-under-oath who, by the way, embezzled $30,000 from Trump while an employee.

But the system worked. Because "the system" is now about power rather than law. And the Left is determined to stop Donald Trump by any means. And when I say "any" I specifically mean killing him if necessary. How else would you explain Democrat efforts to pull his Secret Service protection detail? Is the thought that he'd be perfectly safe in a nice, cozy jail cell like Jeffrey Epstein was?

Personally, I'd love to see Trump open every speech from now until inauguration day with the words "My felon Americans..." Because all conservatives - hell, all those who are even rational - are now considered thought-criminals to be dealt with outside the restraints of traditional laws and Constitutional rights. And by cheekily starting each speech with "My felon Americans" Trump simultaneously mocks the Left, unites the Right, and reminds us that we're all at risk now. Not just a risk of losing a job or being targeted with an IRS audit, but an actual risk of being disappeared in the night and whisked away to a political prison. Just ask the sightseeing grandmothers who toddled through the Capitol Building on January 6th.

This is not hyperbole. This is now.

Obviously, Trump must win for any of us to even have a chance or for our nation to have a future. And his winning doesn't guarantee anything (ask the President who made the mistake of taking a convertible ride through Dealy Plaza after pissing off the CIA) but it is the essential next step on which all else depends.

My actual feelings about Donald Trump haven't changed much over the years. I still think he's a goofball who nonetheless loves America and does our country great good when allowed to do so. Or to paraphrase actor Dennis Quaid, he may be an asshole but he's our asshole.

The sickening travesty of a trial in New York will forever be the norm if Trump loses in November. We can't let that happen.


Between politics, health challenges, and missing my late wife, Kathy, I'm not always the cheeriest sumbitch day to day, but I still make an effort to amuse myself and others. Hence, the cartoon above which illustrates the least-favorite advice I'm sometimes given.

Still, they say that when Life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade.  Currently, Life is giving us George Orwell, so in an attempt to make Orwellian lemonade I've taken a slyly naughty poem of Orwell's and turned it into a Broadway-worthy romantic ballad. The first half of the song is George's (including the punchline!) and the second half is mine. This could be the beginning of a beautiful, and pretty weird, friendship.

Closed captions are available for those who want to read the lyrics and titter in public places. Enjoy!

I firmly believe that the Democrat leftists communists are purposely provoking a civil war. It’s not above the realm of possibilities that there will be an attempt to unalive President Trump. Throwing him in prison or outright killing him will trigger what they really want. If that day ever arises no quarter, no prisoners, no ROE!!! We are in a full blown takeover of America!! Politicians, courts, law enforcement of all levels are full up with those who hate America and hate their fellow American citizens!!

Mrywidow said...

If they want a civil war, they're gonna get one if they continue down this path. Can you even imagine what would have happened if Donald Trump wasn't a billionaire and was overcome with the never-ending and exorbitant lawfare expense? The commies already put Rudy Guiliani and Michael Flynn into bankruptcy with this crap. These idiots don't get it that there are WAY more of US than there are of THEM. Including military veterans who know which way to point a gun. BUY MORE AMMO. And pray for America, because if this dumbshit is reelected (Obama's FOURTH term), we're going to go the way of Stalin. Not a good look. So for you libturds out there: FAFO. Dan Bongino keeps asking folks, "Is it bad enough yet?" And we're at that point where yes, it's definitely bad enough. I, for one, have had ENOUGH.

JustaJeepGuy said...

@Stilt, my prediction about the Demo_Rats suddenly claiming President Trump did actually win the election in 2020 and the 22nd Amendment prohibition against his re-election still stands. The Demo_Rats are most certainly not above trying ANYTHING AT ALL to keep him out of the office.

If they do assassinate him, EVERYONE will know the Demo_Rats did it, unquestionably. They will then regret their decision, as it will be open season and NO BAG LIMIT!

Orwell would have liked your ending to his poem, I think...

mamafrog said...

Beautiful relationship, just eeeeewww! You do know he's...uhm...well...somewhat dead and dusty? Just joking you big ol' goober, you do whatever gets you through the day, okay? If it's wacky poetry or weird music that's okay. Personally I'm with you on the not so sunny days, mine are getting to a point where getting out of bed is just me flopping on the opposite side and going back to sleep for a while.

Don't stop writing,I love the way you string words together.In Australia we now have a Minister for Mens Change.Apparently we all think the wrong way and too many Feminazis are upset.

I'm OK,don't worry about the 2 comments,I stutter when I write.

Brie Camembert said...

We're dooooomed, I tell ya', doomed.
Today's predictions - Hunter will be either "not guilty" or "guilty" and fned 25c and told to be good. Probably the latter. Meanwhile DJT will be sentenced to 34 lifetimes in an Iron Maiden, with a fire lit beneath.
Joe will be elected with 810 million votes and be given The People's Medal of Honor by Xi.
Welcome to the Democratic Republic of America!

Fish Out of Water said...

Personally, believe Trump wanted a guilty verdict as it gives him a 'bloody shirt' to wave again and again in the election.

That said, I also believe the 'favor' should be returned by taking Joe le Petomane off the ballot in as many states as possible.

Planning to travel overseas around Election Day and depending on the results, I'll either joyfully celebrate or ask the host country for political asylum.

That's "statue" of limitations.

It was time for a civil war when Obama was elected the 2nd time. We're way past time now. Looks like we're going to tolerate this tyranny until they take all our guns away before the war starts.

Susan Fineman said...

News...It is all surreal, isn't it!? I say it all the time...brilliant stuff, Stilton! This will the U.S's tipping point. Thank you for every posting.

TrickyRicky said...

I agree that the left will attempt to assassinate DJT. It's an established part of their playbook and they are pretty much telegraphing their intentions. I pray they will not be successful, obviously. It feels like the world is teetering on the edge of the abyss, and the USA is at the fulcrum.

Buy more ammo indeed, then whistle the Bobby McFerrin song "Don't Worry, Be Happy". One can only take so much bad, bad, bad news without losing one's mind.

Love the Orwell song, one of your best efforts, even if you and George didn't use the current name Myanmar. LOL

Snark said...

OBozo's promise to fundamentally change America has been fulfilled. Our just us system is corrupt, our armed forces are decrepit, our healthcare system is malignant (and metastasizing), our educational system is moronic, our gubbermint is kaput. Don't ask what else the marxist assholes can do to screw things up, they take the question as a challenge.

Apparently the lame stream media were in on the plan and thought that by going along with it they would be protected. But marxists don't protect anyone for what they have done in the past, only for what they can do to further their plague into the future. They kill everyone until they run out of ammunition. Then buy more.

I suspect that @Doug is correct: Kill Them First.

At least with a STD there are medications. With a cancer like this, it has to be taken out.

American Cowboy said...

Prophylactic mastectomy is one of the growing strategies of breast cancer risk reduction that is of a special importance for breast cancer gene mutation carriers.

Is the time close or is it here that patriots must exercise prophylactic "surgical removal" of anti-American traitors whether or not they are citizens or illegal aliens in whatever the Hell country this is now.

John the Econ said...

The Democrats have dragged us across the Rubicon. So be it. From this point on, I will not be voting for any state attorney general or DA who doesn't pledge to target Democrats with lawfare, just like Bragg did. If Trump is worthy of 136 years of prison time, then what are the Clintons and Biden family eligible for?

I can't fathom New Yorkers who cheer this. They're living in a city where muggers, rapists and even murderers are in-and-out of the so-called "justice system" as a mere inconvenience between muggings, rapes and murders while their district attorney deploys all resources to inventing bookkeeping crimes. Expect the exodus of the law-abiding to Florida to continue unabated.

I'm like @Stilton. I've never liked Trump, who I always considered more tacky showman than substance. But I've grown to hate the left even more.

Alej said...

Thanks for another Stilton classic . . . the Swamp gives plenty of material to work on. these days. I'm not a lifelong "prepper," but I'm little by little filling a closet with little essentials. The other closet, not the one with 7.62x51 tracer, ball INC and AP.
Read Matt Bracken's, "Enemies,Foreign And Domestic." (Amazon books)
And then fasten your seatbelts.
Love you, guy - stay the course.

For many years, all the Democrats had to do was dig up some salacious gossip about a Republican candidate and he would fold like a cheap tent. That's how Obama got into the Senate. One poor chump withdrew because someone dug up he had visited a psychiatrist! They've never had to deal with a Republican who told them to go pound sand. Their corruption is so threatened, they will go to any lengths to keep it. Informed people like us have known this for a long time but they've gotten away with it so long, they just keep going. This latest debacle has really opened a lot of sleepy eyes. A rational person might think hey, if they do that to him, what will they do to me? We've watched them put Grannies in jail for standing in front of the Capitol or an abortion clinic while the biggest criminal to ever hit DC, Hillary Clinton, is still celebrated by the MSM. We watched that shit show with creepy Arthur Engoron and Letitia James, the Fani Willis stunt and all the rest. This one is just the icing on that cake. There aren't enough fake ballots to overcome the Trump Train this time.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Readers- Sorry for a "group" reply, but I definitely read and appreciate all the individual comments (and you)!

As host here, I'm in the uncomfortable position of needing to point out that references to violence of any kind are discouraged because they could conceivably be used to cart my happy ass off to jail. On the other hand, declarations about being prepared and willing to mount a defense are fine if worded tastefully. Example: "I certainly hope no members of Biden's Gestapo are injured in a hail of gunfire after breaking into my home."

Seriously, I hate the spot we find ourselves in now. I currently see Trump's election as the only chance of restoring Constitutional order peacefully. But these are wild and unpredictable times and you can bet that there are shadowy places in Washington where entities are already working on plans to toss a metaphorical (hopefully) grenade or two before November. To me, it seems like the days are ticking down to a Big Crazy Thing that we can't predict. It's Black Swan season.

I wonder about things like the CIA JFK-ing Biden. Less obvious than hitting Trump directly and more effective as long as MAGA is blamed. I hope it doesn't happen but I wouldn't bet against it.

And geez, folks, all I want to do is write some comedy these days. It's weird to look back at "Hope n' Change" days and get nostalgic about simpler times. But I'll try to up the funny around here, I promise!

"The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon" by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood, It came to them very late, With long arrears to make good, When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved, They were icy -- willing to wait Till every count should be proved, Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low. Their eyes were level and straight. There was neither sign nor show When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd. It was not taught by the state. No man spoke it aloud When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred. It will not swiftly abate. Through the chilled years ahead, When Time shall count from the date That the Saxon began to hate.
