With apologies to Lynyrd Skynyrd!

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?
For I must be traveling on now
‘Cause there’s too many places I’ve got to see

But, if I stay here with you, girl
Things just couldn’t be the same
‘Cause, I’m as free as a bird now
And this bird you cannot change, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And the bird you cannot change
And this bird you cannot change
Lord knows I can’t change

While that 1973 classic was written about a girl that the singer was leaving, a lot of it can be applied to Donald Trump these days. He had predicted that he would become the very first former president indicted for crimes and arrested. And he predicted that arrest would have happened yesterday. It still may happen today, but for the moment, as this is being written, he is indeed a free bird.

Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, has a lot to explain one way or another on the whole Grand Jury thing with Trump. He’s been interviewing witnesses regarding Trump’s alleged payout to porn star, Stormy Daniels. If he goes through with the indictment and the arrest, Bragg, a Soros backed DA, will be under intense scrutiny personally and professionally. There are those in his own party that, even though they hate Donald Trump, don’t want to see him indicted. That’s for several reasons.

First of all, there are some very serious charges possibly pending up the road against Trump. There’s the whole January 6th thing that the special committee of the House put together and recommended to the Department of Justice that charges be filed against Donald Trump for enticing rioters to take over the Capitol Building. Then you’ve got the whole FBI Mar-A-Lago raid, though that is seeming less and less probable now that if you charge Trump, you’re going to have to charge Mike Pence (who supposedly didn’t even know he had the documents in the first place), and sitting President Joe Biden for the exact same crime of taking top secret documents.

Then let’s get into the whole statute of limitations things. The alleged payout to Daniels happened back in 2015 or 2016, when Trump was running for president the first time. New York’s Criminal Procedure Law says there is a two year statute of limitations on misdemeanors, and a five year statute of limitations on most felonies except for rape or murder. So, Bragg’s charges and this whole charade may be thrown out of court on day one if Trump is indeed indicted.

Next, you have the charge itself. It’s not illegal, even in New York, to pay hush money to someone. So, even if Trump did it, Bragg is going to have to prove that it’s against the law. He plans to say the money was paid out of campaign donations, not Trump’s personal account. That would also be an easy thing to prove. And apparently, Trump then-attorney, Michael Cohen was the one that paid Daniels, not Trump. Yes, Trump is said to have reimbursed Cohen for the payment, but does that mean he paid him out of campaign funds, or out of his own personal funds. It will make a difference.

Then there is the public’s reaction. Trump is betting on the fact that if he is charged, he can play the victim, and that will spark protests and increase his chances of getting the GOP nod for the presidency. Most pundits feel that he would be in a better position if he were indicted. It would bring out the voters that felt that he got railroaded and we need to do something to curtail the left’s multiple over-reaches since Biden took over as president.

Finally, and I think this is exactly why the Democrats that are not in favor of this one going forward, is it would be yet another chapter in what I refer to as the “Harry Reid Rule”. While Reid was Majority Leader in the Senate, he pulled a lot of strings to allow Bobo Obama’s nominations for federal judges to go through. He got it passed that it only took 51 votes to pass, not the normal 60. That came back to bite Democrats in the backside when Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, and Mitch McConnell, then Majority Leader got the Reid Rule extended to Supreme Court Justices. It’s also what allowed Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to get to the high court.

And that is exactly what could happen again. If Bragg goes through with this, what would stop someone else somewhere else from doing the same thing to say, Joe Biden when he leaves office? Or maybe Hillary Clinton? Or Bobo Obama? There is always a quid pro quo possibility in these things.

I think Trump is hopeful that he DOES get indicted and charged. He WANTS to go and have the perp walk, and have his mug shot taken and get finger printed. Nothing would make him happier. It would cause Republicans to rally around him, even as they have started to splinter their support of him. And it would strike fear in the hearts of Democrats who, let’s face it, would rather run against God Himself, then to go up against an angry and vengeful Donald Trump. Oops. Gotta go. My popcorn is done!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Unfortunately, Bragg is not looking for justice. Or truth. Or the righteous punishment of a criminal. He’s looking to further his career. He wants to be the AG one day. Heck, maybe a high court justice. Well, we don’t need people making a solemn oath and then almost immediately shredding it. Rand Paul called for Bragg’s arrest if Trump is arrested. I don’t know about that, but Trump has the money (read leverage) to sue based on malicious prosecution, and that argument could start with an evaluation of Soros’ money in the Bragg campaign.

    1. As it should. I’m really surprised that no one has really gone after Soros in all of this. The guy has spent his entire life, and a lot of his fortune on trying to tear down America. I hear that his son is even worse than he is!

  2. I think Alvin Bragg is destroying his own career because if you’ve been paying attention to the News you would have heard that Michael Cohen’s attorney, Robert Costello, showed-up at the grand jury the other day and presented 600 pages of exculpatory evidence that Bragg failed to present to the jury. Those are charges that he should be debarred over, so he may be having second thoughts and that’s why Trump hasn’t been indicted yet?

    But…there are still other protentional charges out there presented by those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome!

    The Special Counsel, Jack Smith supposedly now has evidence that Trump committed criminal violations in regards to his stored presidential records at Mar-a-Lago. We also still have the Left attempting to indict him in Fulton County, Georgia for election interference in the 2020 presidential election!

    Now,…I think the Left might be stepping on their own d@xk’s because if, for instance, they indict Trump for election interference, then doesn’t that open-up the whole can of worms and allow Trump and his supporters to finally present the evidence that they have that the voting machine software was being manipulated? And other evidence that so far the Left leaning courts have prevented from being presented?

    I know you don’t believe that the election was rigged, but I believe it’s only because it hasn’t been presented and adjudicated in a court of law. But if you poll the people who have been paying real attention and not just watching CNN or MSNBC, I believe you will find the majority believes the 2020 election was rigged, especially now after they’ve see how the Arizona election was rigged!

    In the famous words from the old TV show the X-Files, “The Truth is out there” and people better wake-up before our Country is lost!

    I think Joseph McCarthy had it right but was too early. We need another House on Un-American Activities Committee to flush out the Commie Left and this time we know they are there!

    1. You’ve give me a LOT to say here. First off, you’re right to a degree about Bragg, but there will always be some Socialist whack job liberal that will give him work. If you doubt that, look at Jen Psaki. Second, yes, the left is stepping all over their male members. Their visceral hatred of Donald Trump is driving them…nothing else. And while I don’t believe the 2020 presidential election was rigged to the point that it overturned the outcome (at least it hasn’t been proven yet), I have always said there were indeed irregularities that need to be corrected before we get to 2024. I’m certainly one that believes the Democrats cheat when they feel they can’t win legally. I know over half the people in Arizona feel that Kari Lake and Blake Masters should have won and that the voting “problems” in Maricopa County were to blame, but I still contend both were terribly weak candidates (and would be again if they ran against Sinema in 2024).
