RICO suave

When President Trump changed his residence from New York City to Florida, all us smart fellows said that it was to avoid state income taxes.

As usual, Trump had something up his sleeve besides his arm.

In March, he filed a RICO lawsuit that says Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee form a Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization. They created the Russiagate Hoax to discredit and undermine his presidency. This really was an attempted coup and sedition.

He filed it in federal court.

In Florida.

The media tried to discredit the lawsuit.

CNBC said, "During the campaign in 2016, Trump had said at a press conference, 'Russia, if you’re listening — I hope you are able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,' referring to electronic communications that had been deleted from a private email server Clinton used while she was secretary of state."

That's an astonishing way of framing Hillary's national security violations. Jim Comey said the only reason he did not recommend prosecution was she was running for president.

The media wants people to believe that a joke triggered the investigation.

Obama tried spying on Trump far earlier.

While Trump had to take on the FBI, the intelligence community and the media simultaneously -- their siege of his White House was epic -- he either learned or understood all along that nincompoops run these organizations. If Obama is the smartest man in the room, maybe your room is dumb.

A reader called them shrewd, not smart.

Trump's both.

DC fears Donald Trump the way the Wicked Witch of the West fears water.

Ed Driscoll quoted a comment on another blog, "Sarah Palin was a similar symbol before him, but because she never was elected VP, the focus on her faded. Trump would have faded, too, if he had lost the 2016 election. His winning and becoming president was the outrage that cannot be forgiven, ever. They could not believe it happened, and they think he must be prevented from ever winning again or ever taking a position of any kind of political power.

"Not just Trump, though; any Republican who isn’t part of the genteel Never Trumper club must never take power. Any Republican who might really be serious about stopping them and especially about draining the so-called swamp cannot have any power. It is a deadly serious game and they are determined to win.

"Trump himself said, and he was correct: 'They’re not after me, they’re after you – I’m just in the way.'"

I like the modesty of Trump. I'm just in the way. That is an entertaining way of saying he is taking the hits for us.

The January 6 hearings failed to ignite public outrage. The hair-on-fire hysteria begat scandal fatigue. Democrats and the FBI keep saying he is a criminal but they list no crimes he committed.

The RICO lawsuit has him on the offensive because the case is in Florida -- MAGA country -- and not DC -- Maggot Country.

This led to the raid last week. Obama and the FBI wanted to discredit Trump and also confiscate any incriminating evidence Trump has against them.

This backfired like Jack Benny's 1923 Maxwell car. Boy howdy.

Politico in a poll asked, "Would you consider the FBI’s decision to conduct a search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to be?"

47% said an abuse of power.

40% said it was not.

Zero Hedge reported, "About a dozen members of the Republican Study Committee, led by chairman Jim Banks (R-Ind.), met with Trump over dinner at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, a day after the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago resort, which Trump and allies have characterized as an attempt from the left to keep the former president from taking the office again."

His reaction?

Congressman Troy Nehls of Texas said, "I didn’t see Donald Trump sweating at all last night. I didn’t see him being concerned."

Trump shouldn't sweat. Hillary and the FBI should.

Jim Kunstler gave a spot on summary so I don't have to.

He wrote, "It should be pretty obvious that the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago was an attempt to seize evidence likely to be used in former President Donald Trump’s civil lawsuit in the Southern Florida Federal District Court against Hillary Clinton and associated defendants in and out of government for the defamation and racketeering operation known as Russiagate — AND in any future criminal proceedings that might grow out of congressional investigations-to-come against officials past and present in the DOJ and FBI. The idea is to tie up all those documents in a legal dispute about declassification so they can’t be entered in any proceeding.

"Over the weekend, independent journalist Paul Sperry reported that many of the same FBI officers involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid happen to be subjects of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of Russiagate. Have some of them already been hauled into grand juries? We don’t know. But, with the Mar-a-Lago caper, it looks like the law enforcement apparatus of the federal government is seeking to suppress evidence of its own long-running criminal enterprise.

"The parallel purpose of the raid was to find — or perhaps plant — documents that might be used in a scheme to disqualify Mr. Trump from running for office again. The January 6th show-trial in Congress has failed to galvanize the country’s attention, and may have foundered in its attempt to find grounds for a criminal referral against the former president that would take him off the playing field. So, now this."

Democrats know they are in trouble in the court on the RICO lawsuit. They spent $6 million to compile a fake dossier to de-legitimize Trump's presidency. That's a tort. Make them pay.

The FBI raid put them in trouble in the court of public opinion.

  1. Kunstler's piece is smart, and Trump is smarter. It does "feel" like Clinton & the FBI are behind the (panty) raid. The event has the "feel" of a defensive action (to hide Russiagate docs and criminality). These D's and the NeverTrumpers deserve each other (Mary Trump fingering Jared Kushner as the inside snitch LMAO). Water seeks its level.

    2. Trump owns at least one golf resort in the UK. His kids and attorneys travel. Assume evidence for his RICO suit of Hillary is safely stored offshore beyond the reach of the DOJ or FBI.

    3. That's why it was so important to confiscate Trump's passports, I guess.

      Surber's (and Kunstler's) arguments make sense to me. This seems to go way beyond just another sleazy Democrat pre-election scheme, but maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part.

      Trump is a lot of things, but stupid is not on the list. Neither is crooked. I don't think the current crop of hysterical Democrats could make either claim.

Lets see how many states stop counting votes again for 6 hrs to overcome the repub lead. Then by magic, by breakfast the dem wins. Seen this movie before.

The dems are so hated in Pennsylvania that it is getting more and more difficult to expect Philly to save them - plus in PA the number of outstanding mail ballots will be known - and who has them. It limits the steal.

      Michigan is a problem. And Georgia with Kemp when he isn't on the ballot still worries me a bit - which is what '24 will be.

If you don't trust the people doing the search, you can't be sure of anything. The agents searching were some of those already caught doing anti Trump illegal things and under investigation. Why would we trust them, their search, their list, anything about any of it?

  11. Well written post, but one additional point to add. We know there was an FBI mole at Mar-A-Lago. Maybe Trump did too. Best way to handle one is give them what they are looking for--a locked room with a bunch of boxes marked "Classified" stored there. Just make sure they aren't boxes that you're going to miss. Might as well have put a sign on the door saying "The secret documents are NOT inside this room".

  15. Unless I'm mistaken, a civil trial does not require a unanimous verdict, just a majority. Would love to see a huge judgement. Just seeing the Hillary coughing and lying her way through her time on the stand would be excellent.

    If the FBI thought his lawsuit documents were in that room and made a dash for them, then Trump set the mother of all traps. Now, claiming attorney/client privilege has been violated is a publicity masterstroke. What would be the icing on the cake is if those docs were doctored to mislead them at trial. Trump should write spy novels.

  21. This article ignores one glaring point. The judge in his RICO case is the same judge that just approved the raid warrant. His chance of getting any kind of justice out of this court is 0%.

    2. Agreed. People who support DJT believed up until Jan 6th that he would turn it around somehow. He couldn't. I don't believe they will let him back in, and I don't believe he should want to go back in. The fact is that the US is no longer a bona fide representative republic. Either Trump is an actor like most of them or he's real. If he's an actor then he won't do any good when he is elected but the country will be in an uproar again all the time. Been there, done that. If he's for real, he'll get wacked. But if he's for real, he won't win because there are no fair elections in the US and hardly a single jurisdiction did a full audit or got rid of the machines and mail-in ballots ergo the election will be rigged again this November.

      What do you want to bet the R's get the House but the D's keep the Senate. No impeachments. Nada. Biden & Co have two more years to bring the Republic into a state of collapse. Any election in 2024 will be meaningless. There might not even be one.

    4. D's could hold the Senate - it was always tight. But the inflation bill and this raid on Trump's residence probably dooms them there as well. And the recession indicators are just getting way too loud. Yeah, gas has dropped - though has started to rise again here - but groceries are still going through the roof, and real estate is collapsing, car repos are up, and hours worked per week are beginning to fall.

      I think the better question is do we get a surprise dem senator getting beat on election day to push the GOP near a 55-45 split; or does it just end up 52 ish.

Thanks for letting us know that we have it good now since things aren't in an uproar all the time now. I'm thinking the reason why no one is getting paid to cause an uproar at the moment is because the fucking communist morons are in control. Trump or no Trump, if someone on the right stirs up some good shit, you will see an uproar. That's what they do. For you to even bring that up kinda tells where you are coming from. Just a Dick responding to a dick...

He worked on it for a while and then was recused from the case. Many magistrate judges have been recused from the case.

    I do not understand the exact timeline or signifigance of this, but it is interesting.
