There are several undeniable conclusions one should reach about the FBI’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home.
First, the FBI and Department of Justice are notoriously corrupt and filled with partisan actors (although this has been obvious for quite some time). Second, such “Regime apparatchiks” are doing everything in their power to disqualify Trump from running for president ever again. Third — and perhaps most important — Donald Trump is the only possible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.
While leftists pat themselves on the back for their ingenious plan to take down the former president with a carefully engineered bureaucratic scheme — never mind that violations of the Presidential Records Act are common, rarely prosecuted, and never used against the regime’s darlings themselves, i.e., Hillary Clinton — they have no idea they just poked a sleeping bear. Or, as Japanese Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto put it in the 1970 film “Tora! Tora! Tora!,” “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
In other words, if Democrats thought Trump’s base was fired up — thanks to record inflation, skyrocketing gas prices, rampant crime, and a non-existent border, not to mention a well-supported conviction that the 2020 election was indeed “rigged” — the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago just poured fuel on that fire.
As a legal expert told Politico, “If they raided his home just to find classified documents he took from The White House, he will be re-elected president in 2024, hands down. It will prove to be the greatest law enforcement mistake in history.”
The regime’s decision to take out Trump Banana Republic-style was woefully miscalculated. The GOP base has never been more unified against the establishment and its security-state minions as it is now — and never more sympathetic to Trump. For years they’ve watched Trump be targeted by the intelligence community, from the FBI falsifying FISA warrants to spy on his campaign to the DOJ peddling the Russia collusion hoax before and during his presidency. Thankfully, all these efforts have not worked, but its latest effort to disqualify him from running for president is the final straw.
With the raid on Mar-a-Lago, the regime made Trump a martyr. To his base, Trump represents a symbolic repudiation of the partisan hacks that make up the intelligence community. The more the FBI and DOJ go after Trump, the more his base will invoke his name as a rallying cry.
And therein lies the reason why Trump is the heir apparent to the GOP’s 2024 presidential nomination. Trump didn’t start the fight with the intelligence community, but he intends to finish it. None of the presidential hopefuls such as Kristi Noem, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and, yes, even Ron DeSantis, bear the same battle scars as Trump with the intelligence community. The fight is his alone. And Americans of all stripes will rally to his cause.
