Each time Washington Deep State tries to prosecute Trump the campaign donations double. He just raised another $7M for the 2024 election

By Tucker Carlson

Carlson says Trump has 60 per cent support from Republican voters which has really made Biden froth a bit more at the mouth. Trump legally can run for President, convicted or not of bogus charges.

Hey, it’s Tucker Carlson!

The Biden administration arrested Donald Trump Wednesday. They had him arraigned and fingerprinted in a Miami courthouse, like the accused felon he now, technically is.

These were the first steps in a process that is designed to put Donald Trump behind bars for the rest of his life.

Cable news carried every moment of it live. “It’s unprecedented!” they told us, with what looked like shock.

But they weren’t shocked. They knew this was coming. Everyone who’s paid attention knew it was.

What just happened was always going to happen. It’s been inevitable since February 16th, 2016. That’s the day Donald Trump made a blood enemy of the largest and most powerful organization in human history, which would be the Federal Government.

Despite what you may remember, it wasn’t anything Trump had said about immigration or trade with China or rapists from Mexico. Those were the stories that dominated the headlines that year.

“Trump’s a racist!” they screamed, “Stop him!”

But inside Washington, that was just noise. None of it really rated. Identity politics doesn’t really mean much to Permanent Washington.

What matters – then and now – is foreign policy; the invasions and occupations and proxy wars; the decisions which determine which global populations will thrive and which will die – the policies that come with trillion-dollar price tags – the ones that, over time have made the counties around DC the richest suburbs in the world.

In Washington, that’s what actually matters and it’s obvious when you look carefully.

When there’s a debate about anything else – for example, the debt ceiling – both sides take their assigned positions and they start yelling.

But when Congress decides to start a war – no matter how foolish or counterproductive or obviously disconnected from America’s core interests that war may be – when that happens, the leaders of both parties automatically jump behind it like circus clowns.

And then, they stay there. Sometimes for decades. They defend that war relentlessly, against all evidence, until somebody finally rings the “All-Clear” bell and they can begin to admit that, “Actually, maybe it wasn’t such a great idea. We meant well but it just didn’t work out. The good news is, we’ve learned a lot of important lessons.”

In the end, they usually do say something like that – but only after emotions have cooled and the damning details have begun to fade from collective memory. It’s an apology that’s not actually an apology – much less repentance – and it’s years too late to matter, in any case.

But until then, that’s all you’re getting. Until then, no dissent is allowed. That’s the first rule of Washington.

But somehow, Trump didn’t bother to follow it. He was from out of town, so maybe he didn’t know it was a rule – or maybe he just didn’t care.

Either way, seven and a half years later, we can point to the precise moment that Permanent Washington decided to send Donald Trump to prison. Here it is. It’s from the Republican Candidates’ Debate in Greenville, South Carolina.

[Trump onstage with Jeb Bush, etc., saying: “We should have never been in Iraq! We destabilized the Middle East! They lied! They said there were Weapons of Mass Destruction – there were none – and they KNEW there were none! There were no weapons of mass destruction!”]

“We should have never been in Iraq!” Trump said. “We destabilized the Middle East.”

Now, by the time Trump said that, a lot of Republican primary voters were starting to reach the same conclusion – how could they not?

But it was the next line that doomed Trump to yesterday’s arrest. “They lied!” he said. “There were no weapons of mass destruction – and they KNEW there were none!”

Now, when he said that, there were a few in the crowd that booed. Most just sat there in silence, stunned. “Can he say that?”

Well, he said it, anyway. And by saying that, he sealed his fate.

That was the one thing you were not allowed to say, because it implicated too many people on both sides – which, on this topic is really just one side.

Hillary Clinton was guilty of it – but so was Paul Ryan. All of them were guilty. They all knew. They all lied – and to a person, they hated Donald Trump for exposing them.

After that, it was pretty clear that even if he did get elected president, Trump was going to have a very hard time controlling the Federal Government he was supposed to be in charge of. Most of Permanent Washington decided that thwarting Trump was the single most important mission in their lives. Everything depended on it, many of them said so publicly.

But others didn’t say so, publicly. In fact, the stealthier ones took another path: they ran toward Trump, not away from him. They sucked-up to him. They ingratiated themselves to the man they intuitively understood was susceptible to flattery, which Trump is.

And they did this in order to subvert his new administration from the inside. There were a number of these and you could spot them immediately. They were flatterers.

Invariably, the ones who flattered Trump the most hated him the most and disagreed the most strongly with his views.

You saw them in the hallways of the White House and at press conferences. They were there, slobbering over their boss with elaborate self-abasement, as if they were addressing a monarch or a god. It was a scene from the Ottoman court. It was filthy and decadent – and it was false.

Warmonger Mike Pompeo undermined Trump’s peacemaking at every turn

Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Mike Pompeo, Lindsey Graham in the Congress. They all called Trump a “visionary genius”, up until the moment he lost power – and then, they unsheathed their real agenda – as always, the Neocon War Agenda – and they piled on with maximum force.

That very same Mike Pompeo, the one who’s sneering at Donald Trump on TV this morning – that guy – served Donald Trump as both CIA Director and as Secretary of State. Those are the two most powerful jobs on the Federal Government.

And as he worked in those jobs, Pompeo promised – in fact, he swore – to support the President’s agenda. Why? Because that’s the way a democracy works: You vote for a candidate, in the belief that his appointees will carry out the policies that you voted for.

It’s not about the President, it’s about you, the voter.

But Pompeo didn’t do that. He didn’t even try to do that. In fact, he undermined Trump’s often-stated commitment to peace and non-intervention abroad at every turn. His every waking hour was devoted to fomenting war in some far away foreign country or another – Iran, Syria, Russia, North Korea – the list goes on.

But, rather than telling Trump that he disagreed with his ideas, as a man would, Pompeo toadied-up to Trump – a man he despised – in the oiliest, most over-the-top way imaginable. Ask anyone who worked in the White House at the time. 

Who was the appointee most likely to tell Trump on a daily basis that he was handsome, virile, sleek and powerful? Mike Pompeo. That would be the consensus answer. 

Those of us who saw firsthand Pompeo’s relentless kowtowing will never forget it. It was indelibly repulsive.

No one with self-respect could do something like that but Mike Pompeo did it effortlessly, with relish and verve.

Now, this same person is telling Fox News viewers that he fears for the safety of our military. “Our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines,” in the approved phrase, because Donald Trump took some classified documents home and didn’t immediately return them to the National Archives? What a lie that is!

Mike Pompeo knows that’s a lie. He spent his entire life in Washington! Over P/2
