Endless Lawfare Against Trump Is Driven by Marxism and Fear

The latest in Democrat lawfare against President Trump is nothing more than a disgusting sham. The “ruling” in the New York civil trial, where a leftist judge, who has allegedly donated exclusively to Democrats, told Trump, at the behest of a state Attorney General whose sole purpose is to be a “real pain in the ass,” that he must pay $355 million and not do business in the state for three years as punishment for a made-up “crime,” is nothing short of totalitarian.

It has been argued by many as to why the case is meritless, namely because there was no crime committed and no damaged entity, as the banks who loaned Trump money did it happily on their own and were paid back. They assessed Trump’s net worth independently, which is apparently standard practice in the New York State real estate market.

As a result of this case, the entire real estate industry may be in jeopardy. Investor and business expert Kevin O’Leary, widely known as “Mr. Wonderful” on ABC’s Shark Tank, told the New York Post after the judge ruled that “you may as well find guilty every real estate developer on earth.” No one in their right mind, outside of a Democrat activist, would do business in a state that would weigh such heavy punishments for nothing.

But, for the Marxist Democrat, none of this matters.

Marxists, which comprise much of the Democrat Party, could not care less what damage they cause to their cities, states, or their country, as long as it cements them more power for its own sake.

A prime example of this is when the Democrat Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, was asked in an interview Sunday if other businesspeople in the state should be worried that if “they can do that to the former president, they can do that to anybody.” Hochul replied that “…the law-abiding and rule-following New Yorkers who are business people have nothing to worry about, because they’re very different than Donald Trump and his behavior.”

Even if we accept their premise that Trump did wrong, how could Hochul possibly know that no other New York businesspeople do the same? One would think that Hochul would take the opportunity to crack down on any unscrupulous business practices in the state so such a “crime” worth $355 million never happens again.

But she didn’t do that. Why? Because her mission was apparently accomplished, which was to take out her party’s political opponent. That’s what this is all about.

They know they have nothing to run on in November. With an imbecilic, senile, corrupt president in Joe Biden presiding over the worst open border in history, wars breaking out all over the world, and rampant inflation, the Democrat Party only has the option of rigging an election with endless lawfare.

The Democrats and their allies know that Trump can absolutely defeat them in November. The Real Clear Politics average as of today has Trump beating Biden by 1.1 points. That is close, of course, but, to put this in perspective, at this time in 2020, Biden was beating Trump in the polls by 4.8 points, and Hillary Clinton was beating Trump by 2.8 points at this time in 2016. Trump is also leading, or virtually tied with, Biden in all the swing states.

Trump is such a strong candidate because, as I have written before, he single-handedly turned the Republican Party from the “lose with honor” crowd in exchange for some Fox News hits into a party that fights for its voters. The GOP still has its establishment, of course, but the old guard that represents a seeming hatred of its voters continues to shrink in power. The GOP has moved away from being the party of the country club elite donor class to being the party of the everyday American, and that is all due to Donald Trump.

It is for this reason that Trump is such a draw, and the political elites, especially on the left, hate him for this. He destroyed the Democrats’ grip on the working class, blue-collar Americans, which comprised much of their winning coalition until 2016. And Trump continues to damage their brand, and that’s why they fear him and will do whatever they can to try to stop Trump and destroy his legacy.

So, as such, this Stalinist show trial was conducted because of only one damaged entity, the Democrat Party.
