Donald J Trump mugshot taken in Fulton County Georgia

Every day brings us a situation that makes us question whether Rod Serling is going to be coming around the corner. Growing up, I loved reruns of the now iconic Twilight Zone television series, a creation of Serling focusing on the dilemmas of ordinary people facing extraordinary and, oftentimes, strange and inexplicable events. Courtesy of the Deep State, this now sounds like a description of our own lives for the past decade.

This week was no different as Donald Trump, the former President of the United States and leading candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2024, turned himself into the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office after a 41-count indictment against Trump and 18 others delivered by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. It is Trump’s fourth indictment in a series confirming the fear of ordinary Americans—that the justice system is not just unfair but has been weaponized in service of the bureaucratic establishment.

This political persecution of Trump was undoubtedly expected to frighten his supporters into retreat, but that hasn’t happened. The political and chattering classes are scratching their heads, declaring his supporters a “cult” for refusing to bow to those who point and accuse. Believing Trump supporters are somehow mesmerized by the former president as opposed to us being appalled and shocked by the behavior of the establishment, which exposes just how out of touch the establishment is with ordinary Americans.

So here’s a newsflash: Americans supporting Trump are doing so because of his success on the issues during his first term. He made America safer, the economy stronger, and our lives better. For many people, it is also a statement to the establishment that we reject their dirty authoritarian effort to weaponize this government against those whom they consider to be political opponents, which now bizarrely includes Americans who love the country.

This open persecution is not just of Trump but of all of us. The weaponizing of the DOJ and the use of Soros-supported district attorneys to degrade and corrupt local law and order in this country impacts all of us. Ordinary American parents are in DOJ crosshairs simply because they became politically active; local Soros DA’s continue to destroy safety and law and order for law-abiding Americans across the country by coddling criminals with no-bail and pro-crime policies. They are determined to make us too afraid to do anything, especially that which would challenge their grip on power and punishment.

Americans watched as Trump flew to Atlanta to surrender to Fulton County Sheriff, as live news coverage of his motorcade was across all platforms. Florida Congressman Byron Donalds posted this on X (formerly known as Twitter) as Trump was subjected to the arrest: “Today is another dark day in U.S. history. A day when We The People & the world, will witness the continued weaponization of the justice system against a political opponent, former POTUS, & leading candidate for the upcoming presidential election. This is a travesty of justice.”

It is surreal, embarrassing for our country, and more than extremely troubling as a statement about the condition of our nation. Astonishingly, Trump is willing to go through this for us, something his persecutors no doubt hoped he would shrink away from. But no. After making remarks on the tarmac at Atlanta for his return to New Jersey, Trump posted his mugshot on Truth Social but also on X, his first post in over two years on what had been Twitter, noting: “Mug Shot – August 24, 2023. Election interference. Never Surrender! DonaldJTrump.Com.” 

Not exactly a message from a guy ready to go silently into that dark night.

Like everything else the left and their Democrat enablers do, this too, will not work out as they expect. Their goal is to frighten all of us into a condition where we are huddled in a corner, hoping our overlords won’t do us too much harm. The left crafts ugly scenes with ugly goals infused with fear and loathing. Their contempt for the American people is so significant they expect us to surrender. They will continue to be disappointed in our refusal to comply.

For those confused totalitarians in our midst who still don’t understand our ‘mood,’ support for Trump is in part similar to the underlying sentiment driving the remarkable Bud Light boycott. When the establishment makes it dangerous to speak your mind or even criminalizes opinion, we will find ways to remind the bureaucracy of our own quiet power and relevance as we lament the destruction of our politics and culture. But it’s also about condemning and rejecting being hectored, threatened, bullied, and even persecuted. That’s not the American way, and we’ve had enough.

The Trump mug shot is now everywhere, as are the mugshots of the others—his lawyers—who were also indicted by the Fulton County Star Chamber. We are told there will be trials, and Trump will “inevitably” be found guilty of something. Giddy Trump haters cite the 14th Amendment as a way to ban Trump from running for president. Who knows what other charges the special prosecutor will come up with out of DC. In other words, expect the insanity to continue, because none of this is rational. Simply put, the left never knows when to stop. They are driven by a malignant narcissism that forbids the rational and decent. One of the many major problems for the Democrats in their pathological derangement is the underestimation of the American people. It continues, and will be their undoing.

Virtually everything that has been done to President Trump in the last 8 years has been classic textbook Marxism. The left in this country has just upped their game as each previous attempt has failed to stop him. We are now at the stage where the Democrats and the RINOs, who are in collusion with the left of this country, are now using lawfare to attempt to crush their opposition. As Tucker Carlson pointed out in his interview with Trump this week, this is likely the last step before the left takes the final step to ensure President Trump doesn’t ever get back into the White House. That was a great interview by the way. Over 236 million people watched the interview, via Rumble and YouTube world-wide even before X / Twitter put it out world-wide on their service. A real, in-depth discussion of the issues between two adults not just throwing out vague talking points for 2 hours like on FOX. Which by FOX’s own admission drew less than half the numbers of their 2015 GOP debate.

The Democrats are not doing anything new or innovative in their escalating attack on Trump and the American people, but merely copying from the standard playbook of their like-minded compatriots in other countries. Just compare how the socialist or Marxist countries like China, Russia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Argentina, Cuba, Brazil, Turkey and other authoritarian countries around the world treat their political opposition. You’ll note an incredible amount of identical tactics now being used here in the United States by the so-called Democrat Party, America’s Socialist / Communist Party, against the only current GOP candidate that truly dares to take on the left head on with actual actions instead of just talk.

The only part of the above article I potentially disagree with at this stage, is the author’s expectation the left has underestimated the American people. I’ve revised my estimation of how much pain and abuse the American people would be willing to tolerate before reaching the pushback point upward more than a few times in the last 2 1/2 years. Yet every time, the American people just seem to roll over and just accept more. This of course only encourages the left in this country to push ahead even more. Which they did each time. I for one would have never dreamed the American people would have simply allowed things to deteriorate to anywhere near as bad as they are today, with more pain already known coming in the remaining first term of Biden. I had expected the American people would have pushed back hard against this forced march towards socialism within a few months of Biden being installed in the White House. Clearly, I over-estimated the will of the American people to stand up for their rights and freedoms. As a result, we are now at the stage where the political opposition to the regime in power is being falsely charged with whatever the left can dream up to ensure the left’s agenda continues.

The people of the world continue to watch, in total disbelief, as the United States continues its decline towards an authoritarian style government. There is a real reason why both Presidents Xi and Putin were all smiles at this week’s BRICs meeting. Our influence on the world stage is shrinking at an alarming rate.

I want a teeshirt with President Trump’s mug shot. With the caption “Welcome to the Banana Republic of America”. Let’s turn this against the DNC, the Democrats and the swamp. Just like Hillary’s “Basket of Deplorables”.
I know we can’t shame them, however let’s have some fun trying. I love to see a liberal have a meltdown and run to their safe place, craw up in a ball and rock themselves.
Another good shirt would be “Innocent Until Proven Guilty” Trump 2024 In Your Face Snowflakes “

Tammy Bruce, the author of this editorial, is a former Democrat who has repented so well of her former political affiliation. I don’t see how anybody who loves this country would support this nonsense. The Left is unhinged, and it has overtaken the Democratic Party. If anyone loves our country and what it has stood for, they should rise up against this. The real criminals are in the White House, the Biden Crime family, and they should be brought to justice for their corruption. Allegedly millions of dollars through at least 20 LLCs have been laundered to the Bidens from our enemies–Russia, China, etc. Interesting how the corrupt mainstream media looks the other way. Joe Biden has to be compromised because of all the illegal money he has received, and most likely not paid any taxes on either. Our world is upside down right now.

We have a problem in America, and it is not caused by any one thing. Multiple factors have contributed to the dumbing down of Americans, and I can go on for hours, but the two main things are, first, the deep state, the unelected bureaucrats that make most of the decisions, and second, the lame stream media that pushes their own liberal biased propaganda while discounting all conservative viewpoints. How in the world can the average voter make any knowledgeable decision on anything if the information presented is either a lie or false. Until something is done with how news information is fairly disseminated and how we can expose and eliminate the deep state for the deceitful people they are, America will continue down the rabbit hole of total despair and failure! God help us all. Go Trump and MAGA.

The dems and Ole Joe never understood it was about the people. They govern for the elites that installed him. He was VP under the greatest divider our country ever knew. Joe is just continuing his hatred for the MAGA only he underestimated them. All these charges they have created against Trump have no basis in law. Only in the minds of the people that want to eliminate opposition and want to rule America as dictators. And it is not only in America around the world they see what is going on. They thought to manipulate the people to their stupid way of thinking. Only the people are smarter and saw right through their plan.
Trump will be vindicated and ole Joe will be jailed for his selling of America to China and Russia. The Ukraine war he could have stopped it but he needed it as a distraction for his failures at home. I have not seen any improvement in America since January 21-2021. He keeps saying he has passed this bill for trillions of dollars or another bill for trillions of dollars but all it has created is inflation but America is declining. Inner cities are slums. Drugs are prevalent. Criminals are doing what criminals do without any one stopping them. But be a parent and want to be involved in your child’s education. You are a domestic terrorists.
it is about the people. Ole Joe works for the people. And so far he has botched that job and time to fire him. Joe has got to go.

The only mugshot I’m now interested in seeing is the one of Fani Willis when she finally gets booked into the Fulton County, GA jail for violating the U.S. Constitution, miscarriage of justice, and exceeding her jurisdiction and without bond because she most definitely will be a flight risk with all her sympathizers in China, and that wad of Soros cash.

What a beautiful mugshot. The expression is telling. Determination to prevail in the face of Evil. In the end, these communists who are destroying the nation will get theirs. We the People must rise with an enormous tidal wave of support for the Man of Destiny.
Trump will not fail. The only question is whether or not we meet the challenge. Trump needs us to not fail him. He is giving up everything for We the People.
Enough of this wasting energy with the other “also rans” in the Republican primary. We don’t want Republicans; we want MAGA.

There is really only one way, one hope to stop all of this weaponization of one party against another with the current victim being Donald Trump. The solution lies totally on the judicial branch of government. If the judge assigned to each of the four cases against Trump rules that the charges are politically based, with the “hidden agenda” being election interference and dismisses them with prejudice, the decision would be benefit the political system of the United States as well as retore the rule of law.

These charges in Georgia will NOT stick. At the time he was the President of the United States and therefore he was covered by Immunity from prosecution.
This DA went immediately on Facebook and made comments about making sure that the Election was counted properly; speaking of water damage and other things that could interfere with the election process in counting the ballots. Sounds like she’s asking for what President Trump said back in 2020! LOCK HER UP NOW ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!

The Marxists persecuting Trump are traitors to liberty. Labling them Socialists is a euphemism the marxists enjoy. They hate the America that MAGA people love. Further, they hate any and all supporters of Trump and would incarcerate (if not stopped) any person demonstsrating on his behalf.It’s clear that milllions of Americans are outgraged and furious sue to the obvious abuse of legal systems we’ve trusted for about 200 years; but what are we doiing about it; what are we doing to help Trump. Sure … we make donations as bes we can; and thousands attend Trump rallys and loudly proclaim our trust in him–even love for him. But what can we do to cause the Marxists feel our wrath? What actions, aside from violence, can we take to truly make a difference? i’d love to hear some ideas from members of Amac.

The problem has been going on since our Constitutional Republic was set in place. There were always corrupt politicians who looked to interpret our laws for their state, or own, benefit. In the early days they tried to be swift about making them comply with the original intent of the law. Andrew Jackson was fighting corruption his entire presidency. Abraham Lincoln was fighting corrupt representatives who interpreted our laws to support slavery, years before the civil war. Teddy Roosevelt got elected because he wanted to reform, and restrain, rogue politicians and their damaging social ideas, and as he had done it in NY, people thought he could do it for the US. Herbert Hoover strove against socialist solutions in the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover lost to F.D. Roosevelt, so we have government programs that encourage some people to depend on government hand outs, and comply with socialist agendas. After WWII an ambassador to Russia sent a long telegram to Washington to explain Marxist ideology and thinking of communist Russia to our President. So far they have been successful in infiltrating, and pursuing their socialist agenda in our nation. So many people like socialism, and they either don’t know,or have forgotten that the USSR is the United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic. When Stalin and Lennin took over Russia former leaders were brutally executed, people who would not conform were killed, ethnic peoples were expelled from their communities and country, and the christian were persecuted, even killed. We are not at that point here, yet, but it is not far away. The news media is controlled by people who have been indoctrinated with socialist ideology, and by socialist US government agencies. Our people in the past opted for social government solutions when they could have stood for their own freedoms, and independence. We have already lost more freedom than I ever thought would be possible in my lifetime. This is why the persecution of Donald Trump is so deeply disturbing to me.

Right on Paul. Now there is one fundamental question patriots/constitutionalists/true republicans must consider in choosing it’s party candidate: who is the deep state rabidly trying to prevent getting the GOP nomination? Nothing else needs consideration. A myriad of republican candidates opposing that person only feeds the enemy of America’s plans of scattering its opposition. The remaining candidates should bow out early so a concentrated effort can be put forth immediately.

I know Trump is guilty of NOTHING . And that would be how i would vote if i could get on his jury . No wonder they brought phony charges in Wash, DC where over 95% of the voters there voted for Biden . If ever there was a case for change of venue , that one is it . DC was picked precisely because of the electoral vote totals there . BTW, Trump won , the DEMOCRATs stole the election and today we live in their junta .

Trump is complying with the law, unlike the Left’s constant charge that he hasn’t. Your question as to “Why doesn’t he go after them and get them on the run? ” is naively ridiculous. Rest assured, IF he can make it to the WH, there will be HU-UGE retribution against his(and our) enemies.
